Wisdom of the Rings: The living journals of trees
Carnegie Gallery, Dundas, ON,
Tuesday, June 11, 2019 at 7 pm
Our Niagara Escarpment is home to the oldest recorded trees in Canada. This crucial information was obtained by counting the rings from collected core samples of living white cedars perched at the edge of the escarpment face. I will speak about tree rings, the relevance of tree ring research for environmental protection, and the personal and cultural lessons we can learn from studying them. The talk will be illustrated with images of my work, along with actual pieces featured in the Gallery. Fee is $10 for Carnegie Gallery members, and $12 for other visitors, and can be purchased in advance at the Gallery or at the door.
