Local illustrator and painter Maren Inga Burck will be revealing her community mural at Seed to Table Farm, Wednesday, August 7, from 4 to 7 p.m. during Seed to Table’s Growing Community Event (see column, page 4).

The event will feature Burck’s mural release — a 26-by-12-foot installation that is at the centerpiece of the nonprofit education farm.

Burck is an illustrator and painter raised in Central Oregon. She graduated from Sisters High School in 2007 and received a bachelor’s degree in art from Oregon State University.  

Her mother’s Norwegian heritage has been a heavy influence in her work over the past decade. Elements of traditional Scandinavian textile design, woodcarving, needlework, and folklore can be seen in much of her work.

Burck finds inspiration in the forms and movement of plant life, and the communication between simple and intricate concepts, forms and shapes. Having travelled and lived throughout Southern Oregon, the Willamette Valley and Austin, Texas, Maren is thrilled to be back in Central Oregon sharing her work with the community. 

Seed to Table’s Growing Community Event will feature the mural release, farm-fresh Boone Dog Pizza, live music by the band Honey Don’t and Kids Farm Olympic activities. The event costs $15 for adults and is free for kids 12 and under. Bring your own drinks and chairs or picnic blanket. For more information and tickets visit www.seedtotableoregon.org/events.
