Early Bird and Program: The Adventures of Treewhispers in U.A.E. with Pamela Paulsrud

 Pamela will be sharing stories and images of the Treewhispers project (www.treewhispers.com) which was invited to travel to the United Arab Emirates twice 3 years ago. The installation of handmade paper with stories, art, and poetry relating to trees was exhibited in the 2016 Sharjah* 7th Calligraphy Biennial. Through predominantly Arabic Calligraphy from contemporary artists across the Islamic world, there were over 206 calligraphy artists taking part, including other calligraphy masters of different cultures and traditions, totaling 683 works.

A return visit was made only months later to teach paper making primarily to children at the Sharjah International Book Fair—an 11-day literary carnival with over 1500 publishing houses participating from 64 countries and attracting over 1.4 million visitors from all over the world.

Pamela will share her amazing images of the installation and discuss the wonderful reception her artwork received.

For our Early Bird presentation, Pamela will be bring some of her work for show and sale.
