July 8, 2017 — 2nd Saturday: “Scenes of Siskiyou County”

Curators Paula Reynolds and Kim Harper present “Scenes of Siskiyou County” with an opening reception Saturday, July 8, 2017, in the museum room of Siskiyou Arts Museum, 5824 Dunsmuir Avenue.

This open call exhibit will feature approximately 30 artists and over 50 pieces that showcase unique panoramas from throughout the region.

“Having lived in Siskiyou County for 30 years, after visiting every summer as a child, I believe there is a unique magic about our home that can be found not only in the natural volcanic formations, towering trees, and pure bodies of water, but also in the play of light, the seasonal smells, the quiet, and the friendly, artistic residents,” says Harper.
 
“By presenting the ‘Scenes of Siskiyou County’ exhibit,” she continues, “I hope to showcase much of this uniqueness, promote some of the talented people who live here, and raise awareness about the valuable and fragile ecological surroundings that may be used, with vigilant conservatorship, to bring economic prosperity in the form of tourism to the north state.”

 
Displayed in the exhibit until September 2 are photos, paintings, sculpture, and written words that celebrate the happy habitat that is Siskiyou County, California.  Join SAM volunteers for refreshments (wine bar by donation) from 5 to 7pm, meet some of the artists and hear about what makes this place special to them.
