Our Forest

August 21 – September 15

Opening reception: Saturday August 23, time: 4PM-6PM

 

A year in the planning – OUR FOREST- brings together some of the most recognized artists and artisans on the Sunshine Coast.  The participating artists work in a variety of mediums, styles and themes and the exhibition promises a range of interpretations that will both celebrate and provoke discussion around the forest that surrounds and sustains us.
For artists and performers, it is an opportunity to highlight their concerns about local forestry practices through their creative efforts and actions. OUR FOREST will present a wide range of individual and creative interpretations, thoughtfully outlined in each artist’s personal statement. This collection of original work is intended to raise awareness with a broad audience and promote discussion throughout the community.

Poetry of Branches | Sherry Cooper

August 21 – September 15

 

‘I always appreciate trees.  I marvel at the shapes that branches create and enjoy the colour and textures of their leaves.  I have a cabin in the woods and spend many hours in the forest drawing, painting, photographing and enjoying trees in all seasons.   This group of paintings celebrate the bare-branch structure of trees. The spaces between the branches hold the light and colour which helps define the uniqueness of each tree.  It is in this space that I transform bare branches into a showy display of colour, shapes and patterns  these patterns build a visual rhythm which gives each tree in the series its own personality.’ ~ Sherry Cooper
