ST. GEORGE — The Dixie Archaeology Society hosts Dave Manley, who discusses his book Ancient Galleries of Cedar Mesa. The event will take place Jan. 11 at 7 p.m. in Room 121 of the Udvar-Hazy building on the Dixie State University campus, 225 S. 700 East, St. George.
Photographer Dave Manley focuses his creative eye on the ancient rock art of Cedar Mesa, as remote a place as you can find in southeastern Utah.
The greater Cedar Mesa area has been home to indigenous people for thousands of years. These cultures left a legacy of beautiful and intriguing marks on the rocks. Dave’s crisp images show the breadth of the rock art found here, from isolated and simple to elaborately carved and/or painted panels. The book includes an introduction by Benjamin A. Bellorado and a cultural timeline by Bill Lipe.
