After bidding a fond (and, I’m sure, temporary!) farewell to Ane Carla Rovetta, we are excited to welcome Moira Donohoe’s artwork to the Mono Lake Committee Gallery, where it will be on display into the new year.

A native of Yosemite, with family roots and history in the park, Moira brings the beauty of Yosemite and the Sierra to life in her predominantly oil or pastel paintings that include striking colors, contrast, and light. Come in and see Moira’s art in person, and perhaps purchase a painting for your special someone or for yourself. Also, save the date of Saturday, August 30 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm, when you can meet Moira at her artist’s reception and view her work at the Mono Lake Committee.

Glaciers and volcanic activity have been powerful forces shaping the landscape over time. Recreational activities in the Mono Basin include everything from hiking and mountaineering to fishing and birding.

Thanks to dedicated people of the past like David Gaines, who took initial action to protect Mono Lake and helped found the Mono Lake Committee, we all have the opportunity to enjoy this amazing area. As Gaines said, “The birds and the animals, trees, grasses and rocks; water and wind are our allies. They awaken our senses, arouse our passions, renew our spirits, and fill us with vision, courage and joy. We are Mono Lake.”

Here are a variety of perspectives from friends, coworkers and people I met along trails who are inspired and (more…)
