Formed By Fire
Starting Sep 25, 2010 - Jan 09, 2011
In a unique collaboration local artists Colleen Barry, David Gentry and John Harper come together to create a dynamic exhibition for Turtle Bay Exploration Park. Sponsored by Sally Wells, Formed By Fire focuses on the shared concept of "fire" and how it shapes the unique beauty and ecology of the north state.
Working with diverse materials and subject matter, the artists explore, both literally and figuratively, a variety of traditional and non-traditional visual media and technical processes. Just as a burned forest begins to grow and regenerate, the exhibition will evolve throughout its run. Through their art, each artist presents their own interest in how fire has impacted their communities and individual history.
Out of this World

The Wicked Witch of the West may have melted, but we have her hat!
REU proudly presents, Out of this World an original exhibition featuring more than 40 costumes, models, and props from science fiction films and television programs, such as Star Wars, Blade Runner, Terminator, Star Trek, Tron, Batman, and more. From Luke's Lightsaber to The Terminator's leather jacket, see how costume and prop design help create iconic heroes and villains.
Visitors experience up close and personal how costumes play a crucial role in defining characters for visual storytelling in media. The exhibition examines how costume design incorporates color, style, scale, materials, historical traditions and cultural cues to help performers and audiences engage with the characters being portrayed.
This exhibition is FREE with Park admission.
