The Going Wild exhibit features the work of writer Melina Sempill Watts, author of Tree and California plein air painter Jeff Sojka. Inspired by the novel’s lush prose, Sojka has created a luminous series that explore the plants and animals that make up Tree, while celebrating the living ecosystem of the California landscape. Through text and image, both writer and painter invite audiences to explore the intimate visceral experience of going wild. The emotionality of re-integrating ourselves within the living natural world makes for a deep emotional journey. As Watts states, “Sometimes the adventure outside is on the inside.”

The show starts on Friday, August 26, 2022 and runs through October 2, 2022. The exhibit is held in tandem with an event series.
