When Eldridge Bagley began painting in 1973, he didn’t need to search for inspiration. He was already deeply “planted” in and surrounded by the land, the people, and a way of life that have yielded a rich harvest of subject matter. The paintings in this exhibition — such as At the Cannery, The Smell of Rain, and Hair Hut — offer an intimate and authentic look into a way of life that continues to inspire and is worthy of preserving.
