LARNED — Visit the Santa Fe Trail Center Museum between now and Oct. 31 to enjoy a special exhibit by photographer Jeff Dyleski. These modern day images of the Santa Fe Trail explore the swales, ruts, landmarks, and historical sites that are the last remnants of the important commerce route.
Comprised of 25, 11” x 14” framed images, the exhibit covers the Trail from Baldwin to Museum Hill in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Dyleski’s photos include adobe buildings, wagons, bronze statues, ruts, and more. While most of the exhibit is in color there are some black and white photographs, taken digitally and with film.
Dyleski began taking photographs in the 1980’s when he received his first camera. Self-taught, he has won photography contests and started his own business, “PhotoFreelance,” focusing on photography for art, advertising, and publication. His Santa Fe Trail exhibit has previously been displayed at the Santa Fe Trail Interpretive Center in Las Vegas, New Mexico.
The Santa Fe Trail Center Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. and is located two miles west of Larned on K156 Hwy. For more information, please call 620-285-2054 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
