Celebrations of the Sempervirons

The new show, “In the Dreams of the Trees” shines a spotlight on one of our favorite subjects in art and all the different uses in our art media. We owe a lot to trees; our world’s lungs, they pop up in our brushes, in our paint, we paint on them, they are the inspiration for so many paintings, and it’s nice to sit under one and paint. New works have recently landed by Robert West, Rosemary Achelpohl, Kat Sconce, Karin Frederick, Karen Britt and more. Expressions in wood include sculpture, encaustic, printmaking, and even jewelry. The show opens Memorial Day Weekend!

Telling the Stories of the Trees

The Ozone was very honored to play host to a photography workshop documenting the path of our local woods into our lives. The group’s photo-journalistic foray started in the Oregon Coast Community Forest Association (OCCFA) mother forest and documented some of the steps of the woods taking on new roles in the community. The week long journey is reflected in a show of photography by the participants at Beir One on view now!

Reclaimed Mainsail Bag by Kat Sconce

2 Prepared

You can’t be too prepared to venture around in the Oregon Coast forests so you’d better have the right bag. This bag is literally wind beneath your wings (or one wing at least). Starting with a #2 from a sailboat mainsail, Kat Sconce creates the bag with tenaciously tough, industrial strength design to survive what you throw at (and into) this fashionable purse. An elegant and rustic refurbished piece of horse tack secures this mighty sweet accessory to you for your next exciting gallivant.

Trees in the Trees

Dendtrite is the greek word for ‘tree like’. This piece of petrified wood displays black dendrites through the left hand side (next to the lightest colored wood). It looks like this gnarled piece of juniper contains a tiny dark forest within it. The dendrites are minerals that grow in their tree-like forms as the tree is ‘permineralizing’ or petrifying. It’s interesting to think that a forest is growing inside the tree as its turning to stone. Some fancy petrified woods will be on display at the Ozone for the Tree show as well as showing up in the Jewelry of Karen Britt.
