Opening Reception- Tues. June 4th  | 3-6PM 

Join us for our annual celebration of youth artists. This exhibit represents the culmination of a year of arts, science and garden integrated learning with Pre-K-3rd grade students within the Port Angeles School District. Community members are invited to learn more about the wonderful world of insects, pollination, habitat, plants, and soil regeneration through the eyes and art of our youngest learners. Artwork from 250+ local students includes pottery, print-making, collage, watercolor and more. This project is made possible by a Creative Start Grant from the Washington State Arts Commission.

Beauty and Resilience- From Dismantling to Ecosystem Recovery
July 12- September 8, 2024
Opening Reception- Friday, July 12th  | 5-7PM 

Join us on a visual journey as we explore the artistry evoked from the renewal of the Elwha River. Through the eyes of artists who have come alongside researchers, engineers, tribal members, and advocates over the last 10 years in the process of dam removal and restoration, we see the beauty, resilience, and sublime power of this river ecosystem. Their artwork celebrates the spirit of collaboration and perseverance that made this restoration possible.
