Workshop Instructor: Zebith Thalden

Participants and artwork: Meg McGill (F/G), AnthonyYoung (A/B), Shari Dallas (C/I/K), Bonnie Little (E/H), Jacelen Pearson (J), &Angie Potter (D/L)

In 2021, participants spent time witnessing both the SalmonRiver estuary at Knight Park and the headland meadow at Cascade Head. Returning to the studio, our contemplative observations turned into creative inspiration. Through words and numerous works of art, we shared our individual ecological reflections of both locations.
