Exhibit: Treespeak

July 25-Aug 29, 2020

Caryl Campbell, Curator

Artwork, Treespeak by Tori Karpenko.

Trees speak to everyone , whether in the language of wonder or of practicality. Saying that trees are life may be trite but remains solidly true. Now during stressful times nature calls us to relax, reflect, and commune with its most enduring and steadfast companion.

Artists were asked to produce work that reflected their connection with this essential form of nature.

When we are stricken and cannot bear our lives any longer, then a tree has something to say to us: Be still! Be still! Look at me! Life is not easy, life is not difficult. Those are childish thoughts. . . . Home is neither here nor there. Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all. ~Herman Hesse
