Nature inspires contemporary wood sculptures

The Barber Library gallery at COCC is exhibiting “If Trees Could Dream,” the juniper-and-willow modern sculptural works of Ted Gladu, Feb. 23 through March 21, with a reception from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 7 (rescheduled from original Feb. 28 date due to snow closure).

Gladu, a designer and builder by trade, refers to the exhibit—a mix of freestanding sculptures and mural-style creations—as a tribute to Central Oregon nature and an envisioning of how trees might dream. “This is a reverie of many thoughts that I have had, an exploration of space and time, and most importantly, a tribute to the wild land that surrounds us in our environs,” he said.
