tree talk: artists speak for trees

Thursday, December 17
10am PT, 11am MT, 12pm CT, 1pm ET

EUROPE: Scotland/Ireland/England: 18:00GMT, Belgium/Germany/Spain: 19:00UTC

Shannon Amidon, Pamela Casper, Jeanne Dunn, Greg Rose 
For our December Tree Talk, four member artists will share their unique tree and forest imagery articulated through a range of artistic approaches and styles. Shannon Amidonwill speak about the symbolism and science of trees in her encaustic paintings. Pamela Casper will share her paintings of imagined underground worlds of roots and organisms and their mysterious communication and coexistence. Jeanne Dunn will present her paintings and photo-collages depicting trees that are simultaneously life-giving, life-preserving, and deadly; seen as metaphors of our collective fate. And, Greg Rose will discuss his ongoing project of documenting conifers in the Angeles Forest, including the 100,000 acres burned in the recent Bobcat Fire in the San Gabriel Mountains above Los Angeles. 

Tree Talk is moderated by Sant Khalsa, ecofeminist artist and activist, whose work has focused on critical environmental and societal issues including forests and watersheds for four decades.

Co-sponsored by Joshua Tree Center for Photographic Arts
