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



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.
