Photo, story, and celebration by Amanda Love

The Dawn Redwood was thought to be extinct until 1940, when it was re-discovered in central China. The species was on the edge of extinction due to genetic bottlenecking, their isolation having weakened them near the point of collapse. When I think about that in relation to human life – we too suffer when isolated – I see clear parallels. These last pandemic years have clearly illustrated the crucial importance of community, engagement and diversity to our well being.  In the images, you see a genetically diverse plantation of the Metasequoia. They are reaching out, connecting, just like us humans. 

TREE TIME is a celebration of nature, community & the arts with Amanda Love.

Tree Time is a series of images of the Metasequoia (Dawn Redwood)  species taken over three years during the time I was artist in residence at The Dawes Arboretum. This species is prehistoric, its origin dating back 60 million years. That vast amount of time and history is something I have a hard time relating to human time. The history of this species has inspired me to create metaphors for human life and time.

Tree Time is a community art installation that will be on display in a multitude of public venues in Licking County, Ohio. The viewer will have an opportunity to  take the art home with them from the installation. Making art accessible to all ages.

One night only preview event, Tree Time.    

Friday, April 29, 2022  

from 7-9pm  

The Bank, 42 N. 3rd Street, Newark, OH 43055

 Following the event, Tree Time installation will be experienced  throughout many public locations in Licking County. 100% of proceeds from ticket sales and support will allow the project to be free for the community to enjoy at these locations. Business or personal donations valued at $500 or more will receive special recognition at the preview event and at each of the Tree Time Licking County locations. 

Thank you in advance for your support

I was a child of the woods.

From sun up till sun down, I would play in the forest, making friends with the trees and animals there. As an adult, I continue to spend a lot of time connecting with nature, and exploring the benefits that come from that connection.

Forest Therapy,or Forest Bathing, is a practice that started in Japan. It is perfect for experiencing deep relaxation and awareness of the present moment. We will take a very leisurely walk along a forest trail, integrate meditation practices, and gain a better appreciation for the ever changing world of the forest.

Please join me (Sarah McLaughlin, LMT, RYT) for this very special

Forest Therapy Walk:

Tuesday, April 19

9-11am

rain or shine

REGISTER HERE

Space is limited to 10 participants and the cost is $25 per person, pre-registration is required. We will meet at the picnic tables Harm’s Woods North Entrance, and more detailed directions will be sent closer to the date.

This trail is very flat and broad, and most folks will be able to navigate it without difficulty as our pace for Forest Therapy Walks is quite slow. However, if you have any questions about accessibility or concern regarding the walk, please contact me directly.

Bring your walking shoes, journal, and curiosity!

Plein Air

On an afternoon hike in the forest preserve I was delighted to meet plein air artist, Leslie Riley.

Her love of nature, trees and the beauty around her was celebrated in her watercolors she so generously shared with me. So nice to meet you, Leslie. Always happy to know another tree ambassador!
