This exhibition contains images in a broad range of media, including photography, drawing, sculpture, painting, printmaking, digital media, collage and jewelry. Mixed-media installation, and performance/video are also part of the exhibit that deals with the weighty nature of trees, as objects of beauty, as philosophical symbols, and as an essential aspect of life on Earth.
Trees are among the oldest continuously living life forms on the planet, with more than 60,000 species recorded around the globe. Not only are trees intertwined with physical life on Earth, they seem to be profoundly rooted in the human psyche as well.
