BEAVER CREEK, Colorado – Photographer Tony Newlin will be at his Beaver Creek Wilderness Wonders gallery for the 22nd annual Beaver Creek Arts Festival Saturday and Sunday.

His 2009 collection features a limited number of images available in multiple-sized photographs and giclees, which are printed on canvas. The collection includes the “Artic Journey,” a special edition of only 30, from Hudson Bay in Manitoba Canada. It is available as a 30 X 45 framed glossy photograph.

The “Artic Journey” portrays a lone male polar bear searching the sea ice for an early meal. Unable to hunt for seals until large portions of the bay are frozen over, these bears gather in areas where ice forms first to find food.

Another 2009 release is “Great Bear Rainforest,” in an edition of 500 from the Inside Passage in British Columbia . It is available in various sizes and resolutions.

Tony is a native of northern New Mexico, and he grew up exploring the wilderness in southwestern Colorado. He did not receive any formal photographic training.
