The second in a three-part lecture series presented by Pine Meadow Ranch in Sisters for Arts and Agriculture and The Roundhouse Foundation is set for July 28. July’s lecture, entitled “Coexistence and Regeneration: Learning from Rural Voices, Ecology + Craft,” features two speakers: award-winning independent radio and podcast journalist Ashley Ahearn, and fiber artist and furniture designer Sally Linville.

Ahearn takes you behind the scenes of her radio series, “Women’s Work,” covering women ranchers across the West in a talk called “Riding and Recording the Urban/Rural Divide.” Linville, who is the founder and creative director of The City Girl Farm, sculpts natural materials (wool, wood, and bronze) into sophisticated, charming, acclaimed works. Participants will hear about her artistic process, and art’s role in treasuring who we are — our memories, senses, and relationships.

The lecture series is free; however, advance registration is required. The event is set for 6 to 8 p.m. at Sisters Art Works, 204 W. Adams Ave. For more information visit
