In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
PICNIC glorifies the lush serenity, the ripe thriving growth, the vibrant color of what’s living in those sultry days of summer. PICNIC. A psalm to summer. A feast of heat. A babble of bright light. A fragrance of fruit. A sprint to the glistening sun. A place to have a picnic.

PRESERVING SUMMER PROJECT:
The Preserving Summer Project asks the community to capture the endless and invincible season of summer in a mason jar. Whether it be reflections on its color and light, or that never-ending bloom, entries must fit neatly in a “1-Quart Ball Wide Mouth Jar with Lid.” All entries will be raffled off to support this experimental space.
