If you missed Arts Arcata, you still have about a month to see our art exhibits and check out the books we have available!!  The Environmental Protection Information Center welcomes art and book lovers of all ages to its premiere EPIC Gallery exhibition and booksale.  For the first time ever, EPIC participated in Arts Arcata and has amazing art displayed in the office until mid January.  Stop by and check out local artists and their depictions of the beautiful places we work to keep wild, and go home with some awesome books for your family and friends.  The EPIC Gallery celebrates the art and inspiration of Humboldt County, with a particular emphasis on art that captures the beauty and distinction of the Northcoast.  Until further notice, EPIC will have an ongoing book sale featuring hundreds of brand new, hardback, botanical, gardening, bonsai and animal related coffee table books with full color illustrations sold at a discounted price.

Book Sale!  EPIC recently received a generous book donation of hundreds of brand new, hard back, botanical and animal related coffee table books with full color illustrations.  These books would easily be worth 30 or 40 dollars in a store (and some are listed for up to $150 new on Amazon.com) but we are offering most of them for a donation of $10-20!  Books make great gifts and proceeds go to a good cause.  So come down on December 10th from 5-9pm during Arts Arcata, and pick up some awesome books for your family and friends!    See you there!

Art exhibitions include displays by aerial photographer Patrick Cudahy, landscape photographer Peter Carlson and feather and ink artist Noel Soucy.

J. Patrick Cudahy features amazing aerial photography from his series “Above the Secret Space of Tides.”  The exhibit includes photographs of Northcoast estuaries taken from a small airplane, 1000 to 3000 feet high.  This aerial perspective reveals the Northcoast in a way not seen before.

Peter Carlson is a Northern spotted owl biologist who photographs owls and the beautiful places in which they live.  His photographs depict the wild landscapes and critters here in the pacific northwest.  EPIC works to protect many of the places that Carlson has captured in his photographs.

Noel Soucy is a biologist and a copetitioner for listing the Humboldt marten as an endangered species.  Her colorful caricatures are created with ink dipped feathers, depicting many of the species she works with in the field, including the Northern spotted owl, the Humboldt marten and other critters of the Northcoast.
