The event will be from 5:00PM – 7:30PM. MESH Art Gallery at Heritage Hall is located on Ketchum Town Square at 420 4th Avenue East. Beverages and special treats from the MESH Gallery Smoker will be served.

Teepee in Wilderness © Copyright Jeffrey H. Lubeck – MESH Art LLC. – All rights reserved.

Teepee in Wilderness © is of a Teepee (or Tipi) frame located in the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho. The image was captured in the late afternoon in the heart of winter.

Tipi is a loanword from the Dakota and Lakota language. The spelling Tipi is most commonly used in Canadian-English (dictionary) and the spelling Teepee is most commonly used in American English (dictionary).

The conical shaped structure was originally covered by buffalo hide and has two smoke flaps at its top. More background on the Tipi is located [here].

Dawn on the Oregon Trail © is of Purple Sage at the start of daylight hours in early spring. The image was captured near Craters of the Moon National Monument and the Goodale’s Cutoff route of the Oregon Trail. The Goodale’s Cutoff route was established as an option to the Main Trail. It was created to avoid confrontation with Northern Shoshone and Bannock Indians who began resisting the intrusion of white settlers in 1862. By 1863 seven out of ten wagons heading out from Fort Hall towards Boise used the Goodale’s Cutoff route. More information about Goodale’s Cutoff is located [here].

Sunrise in the Mist on Little Redfish – © Copyright Jeffrey H. Lubeck – MESH Art LLC – all rights reserved.

Sunrise in the Mist on Little Redfish © is of an early summer sunrise on the Iconic Little Redfish Lake of Idaho. Mist is burning off the lake and mountain side as the sun rises. Little Redfish is bulging with melt water from the snow of winter. The water on the lake is as clear and still as nature can offer. Shooting Star and Buttercups are in full bloom.

Richard Gary Brautigan’s Trout Fishing in America was written while he camped at Little Redfish Lake.

Says Lubeck, ” ‘Babe the Rooster’ making the call with his big protruding chest and skinny legs reminds me of Babe Ruth the American Baseball player in his heyday. Both Babe’s control the show and are bigger than life.” Lubeck feels the image has a natural place on the wall next to the kitchen table to provide a morning wake-up call.

The other new artworks are Astrophotography.

First is Jupiter Rising on Redfish.

Jupiter Rising on Redfish is of the Planet Jupiter and the Belt of the Milky Way Galaxy at their biggest and brightest over Redfish Lake near Stanley, Idaho. Redfish Lake located in the International Dark Sky Reserve – first in the United States – is considered the crown jewel of the Gem State. There are only 20 locations worldwide that have been designated a Reserve by the International Dark Sky Association.

Jupiter Rising on Redfish “is the result of almost a year of planning, the delivery of a new camera system, a willingness to hike for miles in the backcountry at night, and luck with the weather” says Lubeck. “I was so pleased to capture every element I desired to be included in the image – the big tree, Jupiter, The Belt, Redfish Lake, the stars on the lake, the silhouette’s of Grand Mogul, Heyward, Braxton, Reward, and Horstman Peaks and the Redfish creek valley. “

Second is Starburst on Baldy and third in Night Sky over Sun Valley.

Starburst On Baldy and Night Sky over Sun Valley were captured as part of the same photo-shoot. Lubeck says he was pleased that usable images were captured given the difficult shooting conditions. “When I reached the shooting location it was 2 degrees Fahrenheit. There was a steady 5-10 mile per hour wind, making the temperature between -8F and -14F.”

“Multi-day Solo Photo shoots in the Wilderness create interesting challenges,” says Lubeck. “One, is deciding how much weight I am willing to carry in steep rugged off-trail terrain at high elevation?”

Lubeck chose to carry 70+ lbs. for the photo shoot. Three different camera systems and seven lenses (PHASEONE, Nikon, and Sony) made their way into Lubeck’s pack. “Each had a role in the plan. All three were used and produced results”, said Lubeck.
