Wild Eyes in the Sierra Skies, photographs of the Eastern Sierra by ski pioneer Dave McCoy
Posner Fine Art in collaboration with Harris & Ruble Gallery in Los Angeles, Calif. announced on Aug. 18 that it is pleased to present Wild Eyes in the Sierra Skies, photographs of the Eastern Sierra by ski pioneer Dave McCoy. The opening reception will be held on Oct. 2, from 5 – 9 p.m. at Harris & Ruble Gallery in Los Angeles. The exhibition will run through Nov. 3.
In the 1930s, Dave started using a Leica camera to document the early days of Mammoth. Upon his departure from Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, after spending more than 50 years building the resort from the ground up, Dave’s close friends gave him a camera that defined his post-management years and gave his passion for life a new outlet. Dave is a longtime motorcycle enthusiast, bike rider and backpacker. At 95 years old, Dave, accompanied by his wife Roma spends much of his time traversing the Eastern Sierra on a Rhino (all-terrain vehicle) shooting magnificent photographs.
Dave has long been a benefactor furthering education and cultural enrichment in Mammoth Lakes, Calif. A percentage of the proceeds from the exhibition will raise money for the Mammoth Lakes Foundation and Mammoth Ski & Snowboard Education Foundation.
