“Tree Perceptions” by Lea Lackey-Zachmann and “This is Your Circus and These Are Your Monkeys” by Jessica Tefft
Lea Lackey-Zachmann’s painting and sculpture are about the exploration of trees. Most of us have a story of an experience with a tree that involves some expansion of emotion or comprehension. We often talk about them as if a mystery or special feeling is involved with the experience of trees.
Presented by Artworks Gallery
Obviously, throughout history, trees have provided breath, held earth, offered fire and provide homes for mankind, but other perspectives are also possible. Various ways that trees can be perceived is the inspiration for this exhibition. The focus is an attempt to exhibit an appreciation of trees.
