Treewhispers is an ongoing, international collaboration "awakening our heartfelt connection to trees," involving handmade paper, art, and stories relating to trees as a symbol and resource. Created in 2000 by Pamela Paulsrud and the late Marilyn Sward, they have provided papermaking opportunities in public forums and presented the project in a multitude of venues while gathering round, handmade papers from participants around the world. On the papers, contributors have remembered a tree or the spirit of a tree. The handmade paper is connected together to create large tree assemblages, and ultimately, a forest of hanging paper rounds for the ever-changing installation. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Joutras Gallery. For more information on the project visit, www.treewhispers.com.
