May 4th through May 25th 2019. The Vine Arts Center will be holding an exhibition of art inspired by trees.

“We seek to find solace in the permanence of nature when our world feels uneasy and unsettled. A tree yields gracefully to all the moving parts that surround it and offers gentleness and healing to tender hearts. Trees call for us to sing a song of beauty. A tree is always a tree and seeks to be no other, as it holds space for each of us to stand tall in our truth, to be who we truly are. Whether lush in verdant, leafy canopy or skeletal silhouette, a tree’s strong limbs remind us that transformation occurs constantly and consistently. Let us learn from trees to breathe in and out and to be peaceful together.”
