Wild about Trees Exhibit: Through October 4
The Gallery at Grace presents  "WILD ABOUT TREES"

Featuring Trees in Art artists Donna Leavitt, Cheryl A. Richey, and Elizabeth Reed Smith. Although their diverse styles and media represent a range of realistic and abstract renderings of trees, these Northwest artists share a deep affinity for trees and an interest in exploring and understanding their unifying symbolism. Trees have long been associated with a sense of mystery, magic, strength, and wisdom.  Over time and throughout history, tree imagery has been featured in myths, parables, dream theories, and art.  For example, trees are often depicted as nature's gladiators whose strength enables them to continue to struggle and survive despite great odds and dire circumstances.  In many cultures, trees are revered as totems of unseen forces or potent symbols of such qualities as longevity, fertility, wisdom, and immortality. "Wild About Trees" stimulates contemplation of both the artistic merits of trees and the universal power of tree symbolism to advance understanding and appreciation of trees in an ecologically-balanced world, and the sweeping interconnectedness between people and the environment.  

Exhibit runs August 2 through October 4, 2015
