5200 Lake Road

Merced, CA

Please join us for a talk and artist reception with Rich Turner, the photographer behind the Delta Grandeur: The Bucolic Splendor of California’s Inland Estuary currently on exhibit in the Library. Rich Turner’s photography career began in the US Navy, photographing assignments from the back seat of supersonic jets and in faraway locations. His subsequent work as an award-winning photojournalist at the Roseville Press-Tribune and the Stockton Record led to opening his own fine art and commercial photography studio in 1990. Based in Stockton, California, Rich Turner has been documenting the environment in general, and the California Delta over the past 40 years.

The talk will be held in COB 2 390 from 3-4.
