Buildings, boats, planes, trains and automobiles highlight photographer Robert Dobson’s exhibit as the Historical Society of Federal Way hosts its monthly program showcasing local culture and heritage this weekend.
The photography exhibit, “Boots on the Ground,” will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, at West Hylebos Wetlands Park, 411 S. 348th St., Federal Way.
The exhibit, presented by South King County photographer Dobson, showcases his style of vintage subjects and texture photography, according to a press release. He has exhibited in numerous venues, including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and the Puget Sound Camera Show.
People can also tour Federal Way’s historic Denny and Barker log cabins. Both cabins, containing period furnishings and artifacts, were built in the 1880s by some of Federal Way’s earliest settlers. Each structure represents a different style of log cabin architecture, providing a sense of 19th-century pioneer lifestyle.
The Crazy Quilters of Federal Way will also be showcasing their distinctive quilt and embroidery samples and discuss their efforts at preserving these examples of art, function and heritage.
The event is free, but donations are appreciated. Visit www.federalwayhistory.org for further information or find the historical society on Facebook, as well as Robert Dobson.
