SPECIAL THANKS GO TO KARL SMITH FOR HIS SPONSORSHIP OF THIS EVENT!
Red Butte Garden will be displaying the photography of Gary Halowell May 1-24 in THE ESSENCE OF NATURE.
“In recent years, I’ve purposely broken away from the cliché, and incorporated a more artistic style and vision into my photography. Using my camera as a painter uses their paintbrush I create abstract, impressionistic images of the natural world. With a unique macro-panning technique in the field, I try to capture nature’s pure and uncorrupted beauty in a more artistic and distinctive way. To preserve this beauty has become my lifelong goal. I compose each image utilizing natures infinite and ever changing palette of color and light.
When capturing these photos, I focus not only on recording images that will satisfy the viewers eye, but also evoke an emotion and enlighten the soul. I think of it as visual poetry.
Thank you for taking the time to observe my artwork. And may your hearts be lifted and your souls be inspired to seek out THE ESSENCE OF NATURE.”

Irrigation Basics at Red Butte Garden!
APRIL 16 – 23
6 – 8PM
Whether your landscaping involves water-wise plantings, plants that require regular watering, or a combination of both, using the right irrigation for your landscape can substantially reduce water use while helping your garden flourish.
Join us as we explore smart irrigation practices that give plants the water they need to thrive (no more, no less) and deliver that water in the most efficient way possible.
We’ll cover maintenance of existing irrigation systems, converting to drip and spray heads where appropriate, and other key topics to enhance your home irrigation system. Co-sponsored with Lifelong Learning.
Instructor: Chris Madson, RBG Irrigation Specialist
