The show is organized by the Gallery’s Director, Dr. Robert Craven, who says that the works vary greatly in form and medium, but that all share “a sense of respect for the beauty, power and mystery found in the forest. Each of the eleven participating artists has a unique response and vocabulary,” he says, “but the works resonate with one another, and the overall effect will create an artistic environment in which the viewer may experience something beyond the individual works. The show will exceed the sum of its parts.”
Dr. Craven states that he is “extremely glad to have such eminent artists for this special exhibition.” The show will include a large installation (with sound) by Jim Coates; sculptures by Jon Brooks (courtesy the Sharada Gallery), Judith Cassell, Liz Fletcher, and Jane El Simpson; paintings by Joanne Balcom, Clifford Smith (courtesy the Anderson-Soule Gallery) and Susan Wahlrab (Courtesy McGowan Fine Art); and photographs, prints and mixed-media works by Franz Nicolay, Ann Eldridge, and Kevin Currier.
