In order to give artists plenty of time to create art either from the 100 year old Cottonwood Tree that has been recently removed from Poplar St. in La Veta, or to create artwork in any media about the tree, there will be a Tree Show in April 2014--Botanica II. There are still a few pieces available for creating art from the wood at the SPACe gallery. Small rounds are available inside the SPACe gallery
