EcoArts opens June 10 in Middletown

Nature’s Eye, created by Marianne Martinelli’s second-grade class,
Coyote Valley Elementary School

This morning, Jonathan and I took a walk down Highway 175 to Middletown County Trailside Park. There, artists have been working to install exhibits for this year’s EcoArts: Lake County Sculpture Walk.

Many of the pieces incorporate “found” or recycled materials.

One nice example is a wind chime made by People Services, Inc. out of bottles and CDs. During this morning’s viewing, I also enjoyed Nature’s Eye, created by Marianne Martinelli’s second-grade class at Coyote Valley Elementary School.

The artwork is being installed along the park’s central trail. The park is accessible on foot off Highway 175 or by auto via Dry Creek Cut-off.

The opening reception takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 10. Many participating artists are expected to be in attendance. For more information, contact Karen Turcotte at or 707-928-0323.
