Trees provide shelter, building materials, shade, food, warmth, a place to sit or nest, a place to climb, play, and more. They have been celebrated, venerated, feared, worshipped, and cut down. Join us for an all media, juried exhibition that explores all aspects of trees in art, from raw material to inspiration and everything in between.
