In our city of Trees and PhDs we have a vibrant art community. Last month art and trees intersected in several events.
The newest exhibit at RSABG features art inspired by Johnson’s Pasture, painted by Kendall Johnson, great-grandson of the people who originally purchased the land in the foothills above Claremont. Ken spoke at the opening reception on July 21.
Earlier in the month on July 17, Sustainable Claremont along with Claremont Heritage hosted a panel of artists at the Claremont Museum of Art to discuss the intersection of art and trees. The Tree Speak exhibit is now over and the current exhibit is Dee Marcellus Cole and Carnival Seekers – open until November 26, 2017.
