“The Time of the Lambing and Shearing” Exhibit Opening Reception

Basque Museum & Cultural Center

In 1976, Photojournalist Jan Boles was assigned to write a feature article about the sheep industry in Idaho for the Idaho Free Press. Jan photographed the last lambing and shearing operations at the J.D. Aldecoa and Son, Inc ranch – a year later, the company sold the sheep and focused solely on cattle and farming.  The exhibit: “The Time of the Lambing and Shearing” features photographs taken by Jan along with artifacts from J.D. Aldecoa and Son, Inc.

Join us, at the Basque Museum, on February 23rd at 6pm for the opening reception with comments by Jan followed by light refreshments.
