Friends of the Columbia Gorge, Annual Picnic 2015

July 19th, 2015

We'll again be hosting an art and ecology table at the annual picnic of the Friends of the Columbia Gorge, local advocacy group and true guardians of the National Scenic Area.  Like last year this event will be held at its new location, an established oak stand which I've been restoring along with some help from the Friends.

Remnant, installation by Nell Warren and Greg Misarti

In March 2012 Kahnaway founders present a joint installation at the Pendleton Center for the Arts. Nell Warren's careful repurposing of paint is coupled with her love of antiques and Greg Misarti's design input and resource-conscious carpentry to exhibit this manifestation of material in a glimpse, frozen in time, of a mad painter's mechanical paint studio mid-production.

Sixth Grade Outdoor Program

2015 will be our fifth straight year spending five days up at Beacon Rock Day Use Area, where we host an art table for the Clausen Youth Program.  The wonderful people at Friends of the Gorge have made the district's only remaining outdoor school possible thanks to the donation of a gracious Vancouver woman named Phyllis Clausen in honor of her late husband. We're looking forward to more instructive fun again in June 2016!

Above are some pics from the art table Kahnaway ran in 2012.  The wonderful kids from Canyon Creek Elementary sent me these along with some hand made leaf rubbing thank you cards - what could have been a better reward?  Thank YOU guys!
