Seeing the Forest and the Trees Vol. 2

Seeing the Forest and the Trees Vol. 2

Seeing the Forest and the Trees Vol. 2 focuses on the Northern Forest, featuring new art and artists shown for the first time at The Wild Center. Artists from around the country were selected to represent perspectives on the forest and the trees and the characteristics that make up their structure and essence. This exhibition was curated by Cory Card, Curator and Director of Visual Arts Programming at The View in Old Forge, NY and will be on view at The Wild Center May 5, 2017 – March 31, 2018.

The works of art in this exhibit are on loan from the artists. If you are interested in acquiring one of the pieces in the show, The Wild Supply Company will facilitate your purchase from the artist.

Artist Studio

The Artist Studio at the center of the exhibition provides the supplies for visitors to create and capture their own moments.

By encouraging you to create your own art, we hope you gain new insights into the natural world.

Thanks to Blick Art Materials for providing some supplies for the Studio.
