Gills Creek Elegies - A Photographic Essay

Noted photographer Gunars Strazdins donated twenty works to the Gills Creek Watershed Association in 2016. These 20 fine art prints were on exhibit in the City Hall gallery, and were available in a silent auction to benefit Gills Creek Watershed Association.

The remaining art work is still available and can be viewed in GCWA's online gallery.
