EXHIBIT Tree of Life
January 16 – April 3 in the Canyon Gallery
Trees have played an important role in many of the world’s mythologies and religions, and have been given deep and sacred meanings throughout the ages. Human beings, observing the growth and death of trees, the elasticity of their branches, the annual decay and revival of their foliage, see them as powerful symbols of growth, decay and resurrection.
For this exhibition, artists working in various media install lightweight tree canopies from the ceiling of the gallery. Additionally, the three main walls of the gallery will be covered with treeforms completing an artistic for- est. In this fabricated landscape, two and three dimensional artworks by local fine artists are installed celebrating the beauty of living trees and promote awareness of how they benefit all creatures, providing shelter, shade, nourishment, oxygen…life itself.
