Hear about art inspired by nature

A free talk about VALISE Gallery’s latest exhibition, “Ecotones,” is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, June 26, at the gallery. The exhibition features the work of VALISE’s artist collective member Heather Joy and Port Townsend artist Gloria Lamson, and both will be on hand for the talk.

Joy and Lamson both draw on the natural world as a source of material and inspiration for their artwork, and according to Joy, both artists “see art as a way to shape a more humane and ecologically viable society.”

The talk is part of VALISE’s ongoing series of free activities inside and outside the gallery.
