Indigenous Fire of Western Oregon
August 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm PDT
Greg Archuleta, an Elder of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, will speak on Indigenous peoples’ use of fire in prescribed burns. He teaches about the culture and history of Tribes of Western Oregon, including ethnobotany, carving, cedar hat making, Native art design, and basketry. This event is organized by Oregon Botanical Artists and will be held at the Oregon Society of Artists, in the main classroom off of the gallery on the ground floor. Limited, free on-site parking is available.
This presentation is part of programming for Wild Treasures: Oregon’s Native Plants in Contemporary Art, an exhibition of botanical art presented by Oregon Botanical Artists and Oregon Society of Artists. The exhibition is on view at the OSA Gallery from August 5 through 26, 2021 and online at osagallery.org from August 6 through September 29, 2021. This exhibition and related programming is possible through support from the Regional Arts and Culture Council and American Society of Botanical Artists.
All visitors to OSA are asked to wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status, out of concern and respect for our most vulnerable community members.
