National Geographic photographers to teach at festival
    National Geographic photographer Jonathan Kingston will host a photography workshop during the Trailing of the Sheep Festival, from Oct. 8-12. Teaming up with him will be a former photo editor at National Geographic Traveler, photographer Krista Rossow.
    “Assignment: Sun Valley” is a workshop that will teach students how to photograph a travel magazine assignment from the perspective of two industry professionals.
    During the four days of the festival, participants will pick a specific story angle and work on their theme each day during critique sessions, culminating with a tightly edited final story. Throughout daily lectures, they will discuss how to research and plan for a successful shoot, what art directors are looking for in the images they receive, and how to get the best shots while on location.

Exhibit to benefit ICL
    The work of Boise-based artists Karen Klinefelter and Rachel Teannalach will be featured at the September exhibit at Silvercreek Art in Ketchum, which will benefit the Idaho Conservation League.
    The exhibit will be on display from Sept. 3-28. An opening reception is scheduled from 5-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 3, at the gallery, at 331 Leadville Ave. The event is in partnership with ICL’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act at Forest Service Park in Ketchum on the same night.
    Teannalach is the Idaho Conservation League’s artist in residence. Her work puts the spotlight on Idaho’s magnificent landscapes, particularly the Boulder-White Cloud Mountains. Twenty-five percent of the proceeds from sales of her paintings will support ICL’s conservation work.
    Klinefelter has been making art jewelry and sculpture for over 25 years.

Save the dates for Papa festival
    The Community Library’s 2014 Ernest Hemingway Festival will take place at The Community Library in Ketchum from Sept. 3-6.
    This year’s festival will examine Hemingway’s life in Cuba. Hemingway lived in Cuba from 1939 until 1960. In 1940, Hemingway and his wife Martha purchased Finca Vigia, or “lookout house,” outside Havana. Hemingway lived there for the next 20 years, and wrote two of his most celebrated novels, “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and “The Old Man and the Sea.” “A Moveable Feast” was also written there.
    Highlights of the festival include presentations by the curator of the Finca Vigía, Ada Rosa Rosales, who is traveling to Ketchum from Cuba, and by Sean Poole, author of “Gattorno: A Cuban Painter for the World,” about Antonio Gattorno, a close friend of Hemingway.
    To register, visit or call: (208) 726-3493, ext. 123. General admission cost is $45 ($30 student admission). For more information, email Anna Svidgal at
