Waterfall Arts, 256 High St., will host photographer, artist and world traveler Abe Goodale Tuesday, July 14, at 7 p.m. He will talk about his culturally-based art project collecting images, stories and life lessons on his travels through South America. Goodale’s photographs are part of the “Far Up Close” exhibit on view through July 18. All are welcome; admission is by donation at the door.

Goodale, raised in Montville and Camden, took a year to walk the Andes in Peru, Chile and Patagonia, stepping beyond the travel paths and encountering native people in their villages.

“I learned their stories, values and rhythms and believe these communities have knowledge that is priceless to the core of humanity,” he said.

Goodale is an artist, educator and professional wilderness guide with the National Outdoor Leadership School. He studied ceramics and experiential education and has independently developed as a photographer and painter. His work has been shown internationally and throughout the United States.

Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m.; and by appointment (to arrange, call 338-2222).
