Jesse Widener - Klamath Falls, Oregon
Art and Structure is a singular expression of faith and philosophy realized through the traditional arts, as well as those efforts less recognized for their artistic merit, including the determined conduct of life and being: the art of philosophy itself.

Among the work displayed here, a number of photographs are available for purchase and can be viewed as part of a rotating collection at:
