Visions Of The Wild Festival

Visions of the Wild festival

ON FIRE | Temple Arts Gallery, corner of Virginia & Marin St
Friday Sept 8th, 5PM – Oct 14th

Fire is a critical agent of change on the California landscape. Wildfires are both destructive and restorative. We find beauty in their terrible power.  Our forests, chaparral and grasslands will inevitably burn. They need fire to thrive. The question is: Can we learn to live with wildfire?

ON FIRE explores the relationship between between people and wildfire. The exhibition also examines the current tree mortality situation in the Sierra Nevada. More than 100 million trees have died because of drought and bark beetles.

Re-Shaping Vallejo | Vallejo Naval & Historical Museum, 734 Marin Street
Thursday Sept 8th, 6PM (through September)

A series of interpretive panels explores the changing landscape of Vallejo and Mare Island. People have continuously shaped and restored the land and waterways, even as wild nature persists. Even lifelong residents will be surprised to learn about Vallejo’s hidden history.

Imaginary Landscapes | Artiszen Cultural Arts Center, 337 Georgia Street
Friday Sept 8th, 5PM  (through September)

Memory and imagination are universal ways that we experience changing landscapes. “Imaginary Landscapes” explores the ambiguous relationship between observation, fantasy and art.  The “scenes” in these works reinvent the past, re-create the present or reveal a vision of the future.  Even the most abstract images remind us of the natural world in some uncanny way. Is this work of the artist or viewer?  We hope this show will lead you  to reflect on the landscapes in your own mind.

Our Changing Landscape | Jen Tough Gallery, 336 Georgia St
Friday Sept 8th, 5PM – Sunday, Oct 8, 6PM  (through September)

As part of Vallejo’s magical Visions of the Wild festival, artist Jeff Snell will be doing a site specific installation in the Inner Gallery. The theme of the work is “Our Changing Landscape” and will address the current assault on our environment. Composed of paint, board, canvas, and mixed media, Jeff’s gorgeous sculptural works will envelop the entire space, yet be able to be sold as smaller individual pieces.

The Wait: The Effects of Climate Change | TrojanMonk Gallery, 508 Sacramento St
Friday Sept 8th, 5PM  (through September)

Our world is changing and humans are pushing the effects faster than expected. Sweltering heatwaves, rising oceans and bizarre weather events change our way of life and the delicate ecosystems hosted on our beautiful fragile world.

Come join TrojanMonk Art and observe how climate is changing our landscapes.

Friday Sept 8th Chalk Art Festival Vallejo (10:00 am-6:30 pm)

Chalk/street painters, from master artists to youth and families, will transform the pavement into a collection of vibrant, colorful, large scale images. These designs will include images reflective of Visions -Changing Landscapes theme as well as abstract art, 3D images, and portraitures.

Friday Sept 8th Art Windows (5:00 pm)

Vallejo Art Windows Project was founded by VCAF and is in its 6th year of transforming downtown Vallejo, one window at time.

Friday Sept 8th Short Films and Talks: Restoring Our Lands & Waters (8:00 pm-10:00 pm)

An uplifting series of short videos and talks will highlight the great work of various partners to improve our ecosystems locally, regionally and across the state. Deputy Regional Forester Barnie Gyant of the U.S. Forest Service will speak and and answer questions about the agency’s focus on restoring ecosystem health in California’s national forests.
