Wisdom of Trees: Exhibit – Temporarily Closed
July 19, 2020
“Trees speak to the mind, and tell us many things, and teach us many good lessons.” Anonymous 17th Century Gardener
What do we know about trees? How do they survive winter? How do they grow? Do they communicate? What would our world be like without trees?
These are just a few of the questions to keep in mind as you explore the art and (some) science of Trees with Patricia Bender and Mary Leck.
There is so much to learn about trees and so much to appreciate about the beauty they bring to our world. This exhibition seeks to combine science and art in ways that will increase our understanding and enjoyment of the trees that grace our planet.
Patricia’s contributions will feature small black and white photographs of trees in the natural environment. Mary will share macro images of bark, in color and in black and white. She enjoyed researching how bark accommodates tree growth in circumference and was delighted to discover that not all trees are the same, just like human beings.
Accompanying materials will illustrate, e.g., how trees grow, kinds and uses of wood and its beauty.
Please submit any questions you may have about trees and we will endeavor to answer them. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
