Artists often turn to the artistic process as a way to reconcile issues of the day or an era. While environmental art is not an unfamiliar genre, there is an urgency to call attention to the biological world in the face of climate change and the changes in our natural habitat as the earth’s temperature rises.
The exhibition, “Artists Among the Trees” offers a reconnection to the sensuality of trees through three profound and viscerally aesthetic artistic responses to the lifecycle of trees. From the details of Kate Maple’s drawings and watercolors of soil, seeds, and leaves; the scrolls of trees in the landscape by Virajita Singh; and the handheld bowls carved from the remnants of deceased trees by Trevor Miller, this exhibition invites us to see, feel, and live inspired among trees.
