Tactile Forest brings the theme of botanical life into the gallery landscape. Mossy greens, golden browns, sea + sky blues mimic our natural world through acrylic and oil paints, ceramic + fibre sculpture, contemporary embroidery + unique mixed media photographic works. Each of the seven artists imbue their experience of nature through diverse mediums, reflecting the diversity of the tactile + intangible within our forests + the connection art has with nature.
Artists: Bev Ellis, Julie Johnston, Jane Kenyon, ByNature Designs, Zed Payne, Sandrine Pelissier + Heather Talbot.
Opening Reception | Thurs., Sept 8 from 7-9pm
Artist Talk | Thursday, Sept 15, 6:30-7:30pm ~ Join Nicolas Rousseau, Horticulture Engineer + ByNature President as he leads us in a discussion about biophilia, the importance of bringing nature into our interior spaces + the intrinsic bond between humans + living systems.
