The works in Sacred Forest convey the power and spirituality that we feel in the presence of an ancient or immense grove of trees.
Inspired by a concern for the environment, and motivated by mounting evidence that trees around the world are increasingly at risk, Lynn Avery has created a series of powerful, large-scale paintings that speak both to trees’ immense power and their uncertain future.
The Sacred Forest is Avery’s way of promoting public awareness of the issues surrounding the future of our natural world. The opening reception for the exhibit will take place Saturday, March 13, from 1 – 3 pm in the Hunnewell Building of the Arnold Arboretum, 125 The Arborway, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. The reception is free, and you may find more information by calling 617-384-5209, or by emailing email@example.com. Directions to the Arboretum may be found at www.arboretum.harvard.edu.
