Branching Out – Curatorial Statement:

Trees symbolize many things for me; Life, clean air, materials to make furniture and homes, to fire a kiln to bake clay into permanent vessels and to keep us warm. The Tree is about family and the roots of where we come from. The Tree is always; reaching up to the heavens, trying to get a full kiss from the sun on every leaf and reaches down to where the earth’s nutrients are nestled.

The Tree Always Strives for its Best Self.

Branching Out is trying to capture the Tree at its best. The artists’ imaginations are being stretched and pulled with this image. From Thread to Soft Pastel, Pen & Ink, collage to Intaglio, from Acrylic, Watercolour, & Oil to Digitally Altered Photography to Mixed Media Digital Masterpieces. The materials in this show are branching out from a simple pencil rendering. With first time artists showing their early creations, to mid-career and mature artists, we have a full array of makers in this show.

This Show is Striving for the Best of what Artists can Create when Given the Opportunity to Branch Out.
