Decorate and paint a tree slice to create your very own nature magnet!

In honor of our special exhibition, Rooted in Place, join experienced artist Christina Kortz in decorating and painting a tree slice with an image of your choice – a landscape, a flower, or even an abstract drawing! When you’re done, you can attach a magnet on the back of your tree slice and create your very own magnet decoration for your home.

The print has some light foxing and yellowing and has been cleaned. On the left margin the print has a little reinforced area (with kozo paper) that is almost invisible outside the margins of this wonderful woodcut.
