News Release
In 'Celebrating Renewal,' Tillamook Forest Center welcomes a new kind of art exhibit this summer - 06/13/18

Tillamook, Ore. — “Celebrating Renewal: Visions in the Forest” is a collaborative art exhibit between Oregon artists Elaine Treadwell and Beth O’Mahony on display at the Tillamook Forest Center from June 13 through September 2.

Visitors are invited to explore sculptural installations both inside the center and out on the trails. The sculptures utilize natural materials to celebrate nature’s capacity for renewal and encourage viewers to see the familiar with new eyes.

The Tillamook Forest Center will have an opening reception with the artists on Saturday, June 16 at 1 p.m. at the Center, located at 45500 Wilson River Highway, Tillamook, Ore. “Misty Forest Promenade,” a new musical composition by Miranda Lehman, will debut 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.

In addition to the summer installation, the artists will also lead a woven sculpture workshop at the center on Saturday, July 14. To learn more about the workshop, or to explore upcoming naturalist-led programs, check out the program & event calendar at http://www.tillamookforestcenter.com/calendar.

About the Tillamook Forest Center: The Tillamook Forest Center is a special place to develop a deeper connection with Oregon’s forests through experience and exploration. The Center is open Wednesday through Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (summer hours). A $5 donation is suggested.
