Bedford Gallery’s community exhibition, If a Tree Falls: Art of the Boundary Oak will memorialize the City of Walnut Creek’s iconic Valley Oak, historically named the Boundary Oak. The massive tree, which once marked the boundary line separating Contra Costa County and Walnut Creek, was sadly destroyed during a fierce windstorm in October 2019. In honor of the tree’s life and history, which experts say spanned 325 years, artists are invited to create artwork from its beautiful wood. The resulting community exhibition will showcase a wide range of artworks crafted from our beloved oak, celebrating the grand tree’s full life. Deadline: September 3, 2021.
