Wisdom of the Rings: The Living Journals of Trees

  • Carnegie Gallery 10, King Street West Dundas, ON, L9H 1T7 Canada (map)

Our Niagara Escarpment is home to the oldest recorded trees in Canada. This remarkable information was obtained by counting the rings from collected core samples of living White Cedars perched at the edge of the escarpment face. Artist and horticulturalist Lorraine Roy will speak about how tree rings record a forest’s history, the relevance of tree ring research for environmental protection, and the personal and cultural lessons we can draw from them. The talk will be illustrated with entrancing images of her textile work, along with actual pieces featured in the Gallery.

Tickets: Members $10, Non-members $12
