Ketchum, Idaho - ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - A new art exhibition just opened at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts. “Forests, Foraging, and Fires” takes a look at our human relationship to the forest.

The Center’s interest in this topic sparks from the abundance of nature that surrounds the community. Recent forest fires, such as last year’s Beaver Creek Fire, made everyone particularly aware of the many complicated issues involved.

The project is not just an art exhibition. This fall, you can look forward to an additional exhibit in Hailey. A panel discussion on forest management, films, lectures, family outings, and even a play are included.

“This exhibition offers everybody the opportunity to think about their own relationship to the forest, how they use it, what they take from it, and how they enjoy it,” said Courtney Gilbert, Curator of Visual Arts for the Sun Valley Center for the Arts.

One of the artists in the exhibition, William Lewis, is going to be teaching a painting class in mid-October. Lewis is giving a talk at The Center during this Friday’s gallery walk.
