Adventure & Art: Osceola resident, adventurer, and photographer Ryan Rodgers will be on hand to present his favorite photography of the epic St. Croix River & to do a presentation titled "Experiencing the Natural Landscape through Photography"! Ryan's work has appeared in regional and national publications. He has a Master of Fine Arts from Hamline University. No matter occasional attempts at pragmatism, he has proven to be helpless to the draw of the outdoors. Ryan's framed prints will be available for sale at Cyclova XC! See several amazing teaser images of Ryan's below!
About the Presentation: Nature photography carries freedom to wander and see, yet requires a willful servitude to the actuality of place. Few, if any, other art forms are as dependent on the uncontrollable current state of their subjects. This necessitates direct and prolonged engagement with, in this case, the Saint Croix River. The presentation will include slides coupled with anecdotes and insights gleaned from hundreds of days spent seeking images along the Croix, by foot, kayak and ski.
Beverage Theme: "The St. Croix River Valley". We will feature beverages for the whole family, primarily from the St. Croix River Valley - including an extra special home-brew cidre treat!
Tech: Jerry Slater, veteran of the Toko Tech Team, presents ski prep for the Pre-Birkie & Mora Vasaloppet - with plenty of time for Q & A on the latest Toko technologies.
