Current Exhibit



Carol has had a life long interest in nature that has been deepened by years of hiking and gardening. Five years ago her interest in photography was rekindled while spending time in an artist's residency in the tiny village of Oysterville, Washington. She hopes that her photos--- which have appeared in local, regional, and international exhibitions and publications--- will increase awareness of how very precious what we have left of our natural environment is.

Jim taught English literature at Union for 34 years, his special interests then and still English and American poetry from their beginnings to now, and the relationships between art, literature, and history. His poems--- which have appeared in journals and books---  have as their subjects art, photography, and history, as well as natural objects and places.
