Thanks for support
Several weeks ago, the newspaper ran an article entitled “‘The Opposite of Entropy’ exhibit brings abstract art into focus.” With that exhibit, The Confluence: Art in Twisp and the exhibit’s curator Penelope Varn also helped bring wildfire awareness into focus through the Confluence’s partnership with local nonprofit Fire Adapted Methow Valley (FAMV) and contributing a portion of exhibit proceeds to our work.
With the Methow Valley’s increased fuel build-up, drought, extreme weather events, and more homes being built in the forest and shrub steppe, our wildfires all too easily become a destructive and chaotic force. FAMV assists residents to develop strategies and take adaptive actions for living with wildfire.
We’re grateful to The Confluence for hosting the visually and conceptually rich art exhibit and for its commitment to partner with nonprofits such as ours. This level of partnership is a remarkable aspect of our community. This year’s Give Methow Campaign focused on the recognition that we all can do more good in the valley if we work collaboratively and draw out each other’s strengths.
Thank you, everyone who contributed to Give Methow, and The Confluence for your community spirit and generosity!
