The Jon Mullen Gallery
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Photographer Jon Mullen opens new Boulder gallery with a reception on March 15
Collection supports conservation efforts and connects community with threatened wild places
BOULDER, Colo., February 25, 2019 – Award-winning nature and landscape photographer Jon Mullen debuts his gallery in Boulder with a grand opening reception on Friday, March 15, from 4–8 p.m. The collection features photographs from Mullen’s two decades behind the camera and recent work in support of Colorado’s public lands.
Mullen’s photography has strongly arced toward environmental issues. Last year, he launched a first-of-its-kind conservation stock library to support non-profit organizations working to protect Colorado’s lands. Dedicated to lesser-photographed locations with active conservation campaigns, the library provides these groups with free access to powerful visuals to help raise public awareness and strengthen conservation efforts.
“Photography has allowed me to explore the hidden corners of the West,” said Mullen. “There’s no greater satisfaction than knowing my work is being used by conservation organizations and policymakers in the fight to protect these special places for the next generation.”
The Jon Mullen Gallery will support his continued work to contribute photographs at no cost and serve as a new venue to connect the community with Colorado’s threatened wild places through a series of shows and events. Expect programs this year on areas that would be protected by the Colorado Outdoor Recreation and Economy (CORE) Act, recently introduced by Sen. Michael Bennet and Rep. Joe Neguse, and the Gunnison Public Lands Initiative.
“Jon has been a generous contributor of his amazing photography to advance efforts to conserve our public lands across Colorado and the West. Whether the breathtaking vistas of the San Juan Mountains, the golden aspen of the Thompson Divide, the world-class hiking around the Continental Divide, or the imposing palisades of the Curecanti, Jon’s photos provide a compelling case to protect these special places for present and future generations,” said The Wilderness Society’s Scott Miller, Senior Regional Director, Southwest. Miller will lead guests through a preview of an upcoming exhibit dedicated to the CORE Act and discuss the legislation, which would protect approximately 400,000 acres of public land in Colorado. During the opening reception, 10% of sales will be donated directly to The Wilderness Society.
Mullen’s photography has appeared in national and international publications – including Time, The Times of London, The Guardian, Mother Jones, and Outdoor Photographer magazine. He is a contributing photographer to The Wilderness Society, Conservation Colorado, and Wilderness Workshop. Follow him on Instagram.
The Jon Mullen Gallery is located at 1727 Pearl Street in Boulder. Visit jonmullen.com for gallery hours, upcoming events, and new additions to the collection.
