Salem Art Collective: The Oregon Garden
Once a month the Salem Art Collective (formerly the Salem Art Group)gets together for some kind of creative outing -- we've visited a monastery, a cultural art center, even a field trip to Portland. For our September event, we travelled to Silverton to visit The Oregon Garden. Several of us used the opportunity to hone our photography skills, and a couple of us did some sketching. After poking about on our own, we reconvened for lunch at an outside picnic table. It was a perfect fall day: warm and sunny and many of the bright colored flowers were still in bloom.
