Video: Howard Zahniser Honored On 50th Anniversary Of Wilderness Act By His Son

Dr. Mathias Zahniser, son of Tionesta native and federal Wilderness Act author Howard Zahniser, spoke at the opening of the special photo exhibit at the Crary Art Gallery in Warren in August to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Act.  Click Here to watch a video his his remarks.
Sponsored by Friends of the Allegheny Wilderness, the exhibit is one of several special events organized for the 50th anniversary this year.
The show honored the author of the Wilderness Act and Tionesta native Howard Zahniser, with images of wild lands sent to the Crary by world-class nature photographers from around the country.
The two organizations worked hard to bring to Warren the photography of luminaries Craig Blacklock, Clyde Butcher, Robert Clements, Kevin Ebi, Robbie George, Stephen Gorman, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Scot Miller, David Muench, Marc Muench and Mark Muse.
In addition to featuring wilderness all around the nation, the show featured the winners of a photography contest run by the two non-profit organizations, profiling the two designated wilderness areas in nearby Allegheny National Forest, the Hickory Creek and Allegheny Islands Wilderness Areas. Two images from each of the two areas were selected.
The winning entries of Hickory Creek Wilderness were shot by Judy Cole Blank of Warren and Mark Hulings of Corry. Piper VanOrd of Irvine had two winning photos of Allegheny Islands. These winners, whose works were selected for their artistic merit from among 20 other very strong entries, were shown alongside some from the top photographers in the world.
The show ended on September 28.  Click Here to view a catalog of all the images included in the exhibit.
