For our June Tree Talk, four outstanding ecoartspace artists will share their ideas and photo-based works about trees and forests. Melinda Hurst Frye will speak on themes of ecology and place in her photographs of the churning Pacific Northwest landscape floor, the land of the Coast Salish people. Tony Bellaver will present his recent photo project “Resource Extraction” and mixed media books and sculptures, which examine and confront the anthropocentric practice of forest clear cutting. Anatomist and histologist, Narelle Carter-Quinlan will share her experiences of her body as part of the living fabric of Country (tree skin – my skin – Australian skin) and embodied ecology of Place. Pamela Pauline will discuss “Fragile Beauty, Rich and Rare” and “On the Brink,” her works created entirely of flora and fauna endemic to Australia and listed as rare, vulnerable or endangered.

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.
