Our Events that Need You!

Spring Chimes exhibit – April 1-30 – This exhibit will showcase artistic wind chimes throughout the arboretum. Artists can donate an existing chime or create a new piece. All artisans will be acknowledged in online and onsite exhibit promotions.

Chimes can either be loaned or permanently donated Taltree. If chimes are on-loan, Taltree is not responsible for the natural damage that may occur to a piece due to the environment it is displayed in. Taltree staff will take every precaution necessary to prevent as much damage as possible.

Depot Gallery – year-round – Display your artwork inside Taltree’s visitors center. This space is perfect for showcasing family friendly nature exhibits. For-sale artwork can be sold through the Taltree Store located in the same building.
