Evergreen, the creative collection from wall space gallery is available now.
This series, curated by Laina Malm-Levine, a new member of our team here in Santa Barbara, has found a way to discuss our love of branches, structure and the sense of groundedness we feel when in a forest of trees, our local parks, even our backyard.
Not content with a narrative about green, she looked for how we use this connection to our conifers, for shelter, decoration, contemplation and ultimately for strength to solidify a relationship to our surroundings. Complementing our exhibition in the gallery this month, Into The Light, we strive to balance our desire for a solid terra firma and a reach for the intangible source of illumination, both spiritual and physical.
Inspired by a quote from David Paul Bayles, one of the eight artists included in Evergreen, Laina has culled together a group of artists whose love of the deciduous has follows that vision.
I have always been drawn to forests, especially what I think of as blue-collar forest. While I marvel at, and appreciate the magnificent specimens living in our national parks, they represent a very narrow view of our connection to trees. In a forest I see communities of beings, creating and collaborating in the rich cycle of living and dying.
We are excited to announce images available from the following artists, with prices starting at $200.
