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!

Hosted by Evanstonmade and sponsored by Artist Book House, Treewhispers along with a multitude of artists, creatives and visionaries illuminate the space at 921 Church St., Evanston, IL .

Lisa Degliantoni, Founder and Executive Director of Evanstonmade along with her Co-Directors Kathy Halper and Liz Cramer, launched the massive transformation of a former Urban Outfitters building into an energetic artist exchange and vibrant community outreach at seemingly a moment’s notice in early November. Now knowing the “trio of force” I understand their unparalleled dedication and drive, and the possibilities they employ.  


Thanks to the sponsorship and eager assist by ABH Board Member, Jamie Thome the “growing of the forest” took shape in a timely manner. Janice Kiska, Cori Paulsrud and Michael Sweirz also gratefully stepped in for the final touches.


Installing and seeing the work in a new venue never ceases to amaze and delight me. On the handmade paper rounds I see the stories and art of those who shared them 20 years ago reverberate with those bound together only a week prior. These all feel like friends to me—friends bound with a common interest, passion and love for trees.


Enjoy the Treewhispers installation and a multitude of happenings until December 19, 2021.

A long awaited for and incredibly breathtaking capture of the Kaligrafos – Calligraphy Guild journey with Treewhispers.

Congratulations to Thomas Burns, the Council of Oaks and a multitude of Kaligrafos – Calligraphy Guild enthusiasts. Your narration, photos, videos, and sound/music choices beautifully unveiled the many months of dedication to the project—and truly its essence—the connection we have with one another—and trees, of course.

My heartfelt gratitude for your continued dedication and perseverance even—and especially— in the face of disappointment. The unique approach to the virtual exhibition in the woods (a collaboration with the trees—how perfect!) will surely touch others in a way that a gallery exhibit might otherwise not.

I went on a bike ride with my two children by Lake Michigan in Lake County. We decided to try a new path which guided us to an isolated sandy and pebbled covered patch which had this enormous price of drift wood. The roots of the tree were a work of art. They entangled each other caught my eye, and within seconds myself and kids were exploring is unique shapes and how the tiny pebbles trickled down the roots making the most beautiful sounds.
