LONG before Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth," there was activist-photographer Robert Glenn Ketchum’s prescient plea for preservation. Ketchum's well-known imagery -- replicated in prints, posters and calendars -- has been intrinsically linked to the nation's ecology movement for nearly four decades: rendering landscapes in their magnificent grandeur as well as hovering over the delicate particulars (the essential working parts).

This photograph is in the "Golden Age" exhibition at Rohrer Fine Art, Laguna Beach, through May 31. * Though Robert Glenn Ketchum's work has received some museum attention, most recently at the Amon Carter in Texas, it isn't universally appreciated in the art world. His color landscapes are too lush; he's sometimes regarded as a latter-day Pictorialist or calendar artist. Still, he believes in his work unequivocally. He's unapologetic, even defiant, in the face of any rejection.

Texture, color and light all play an important role in "Threads of Light: Chinese Embroidery From Suzhou and the Photography of Robert Glenn Ketchum," a rare exhibition of contemporary Chinese embroidery opening Sunday at UCLA's Fowler Museum of Cultural History. The first exhibition outside of China to focus on the renowned Suzhou Embroidery Research Institute features 30 works incorporating many types of stitches and hundreds of hues of silk threads.

For sheer visual splendor, "Threads of Light: Chinese Embroidery From Suzhou and the Photography of Robert Glenn Ketchum" is an exhibition that shouldn't be missed. At UCLA's Fowler Museum of Cultural History, this seemingly odd pairing of the ancient art of embroidery and the modern art of photography raises so many fascinating questions about the strengths and limitations of these apparently unrelated media that the age-old battle between photography and painting pales in comparison.

As if by some divine design, photography has descended on galleries from Camarillo to Santa Barbara. Whereas fine art photography is still fairly marginal in the ranks of exhibited media, it's currently possible to get a broad sense of what the medium is all about just by gallery-hopping in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. At first blush, Robert Glenn Ketchum's work, now at the Carnegie Museum, seems to be directly out of the landscape tradition.
