JOSEPH — Geologist and photographer Ellen Morris Bishop will be featured in one of the weekly “Brown Bag” sessions put on by the Josephy Center for Arts and Culture on Tuesday, Jan. 18, from noon to 1 p.m., according to a press release.

Bishop is one of many artists exhibiting in the current show at the center called "Nature In the Abstract.”

"At all scales, the patterns of a landscape, whether fence lines that have mellowed with age, patterns woven in reeds and grasses, the stacked symmetry of basalt columns, and so much more, reveal much about its history and can help define its composition,” Bishop said. “Capturing those patterns in images helps engage the viewer in the landscape’s story and mysteries."

The exhibit is up until Feb. 22.

Bishop is well-known locally as a writer and photographer, and is highly regarded across the region for her work and her books on Northwest geology. Her latest book is "Living With Thunder."

The Brown Bag will be by Zoom. Those interested can go to the website at, or email to get a link to this free event.
