The common treatment for pine beetle-devoured trees: Cut ’em down and burn ’em up. Sculpture and installation artist Eric Dallimore’s five-piece exhibit transforms the interior of Leon Gallery into Leon’s Garden where the remnants of pine beetle kill wood—donated from a mill in Silverplume—are repurposed into art that shares crucial information about the epidemic without the “doomsday” feeling. Dallimore’s vision for a inside garden revealed itself in 2005 when he visited the space after fleeing his home of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Tue-Sun noon-5 p.m.
