Celebrating Renewal: Visions in the Forest

June 13 - September 2, 2018

Indoor & outdoor art exhibit


Opening Reception

June 16, 2018 (Saturday)

1 - 4 pm | Open to the public

Two Oregon artists, Elaine Treadwell and Beth O’Mahony, are collaborating to bring a series of sculptural installations into the woods around the Tillamook Forest Center. Their inspiration is to create a celebration of nature’s capacity for renewal, a place to reflect on the timelessness of being in the forest and encourage others to see the familiar with new eyes. The sculptures shape the space between trees, play with the sparkling light, and add new colors and patterns to the palette of the forest. Bring your playfulness and sense of wonder on your walk along the River View Trail.

“Misty Forest Promenade”, a new musical composition by Miranda Lehman, will be debuted at the opening reception. Visitors can download the music to accompany their experience as they walk among the sculpture trail. The music can be purchased and downloaded at: https://korouva.bandcamp.com/album/misty-forest-promenade. Due to extremely limited cell service at the Tillamook Forest Center, it is recommended to download music prior to arrival.
