Photographer Dowen Jones is part of the Sherman County community and mayor of the small town of Rufus, Oregon and the Featured Local Artist for September. Dowen is an electrician traveling up and down the Columbia River Gorge as well as all over the Pacific Northwest year round. He has a huge appreciation for nature and the beauty in this area. With his cell phone in hand, Dowen captures some of the most scenic views and interesting close-ups around our local communities.
All of Dowen’s photos were taken with his cell phone and the quality is impressive! The photos we have on display in the lobby of the Sherman County Historical Museum are just the tip of his large collection. The variety of photos on display are black and white, panoramic and color. Dowen is the photographer that makes the extra effort to take a photo from the angle you might not see and scenic views from places you may never hike!
Dowen’s photos will be on display until the end of September 2019. Please visit the museum to see the photos by Dowen. There is no charge for this exhibit which is on display in the lobby of the museum for the month of September. The award-winning Museum in Moro is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through October.
