Publisher Wynne Benti will be sharing Richard Coons’ gorgeous art book, Robert Clunie: Plein-Air Painter of the Sierra (available from Spotted Dog Press). Richard Coons and Robert Clunie were life-long friends. Richard actively supported Robert’s work which has become synonymous with the Eastern Sierra style of plein-air painting.

Joyce Kobashi is a life-long fine artist and photographer who recently produced a series of unique, detailed photo-ceramic mugs and platters for ESIA. Some of the items feature the Ancient Bristlecone Pines, the Mammoth Minarets and Mt. Whitney. These beautiful items will be for sale at this event.

Brad Karelius will be signing his regional, inspirational book: The Spirit in the Desert as well as Encounters with the World’s Religions. Drawing upon forty years teaching in this “achingly beautiful place, his book shares crystallizations of his collective wisdom and finely tuned description of sites…that will draw you deeper in your personal encounters with world spiritualities.”
