Apr 7-30 Lynn Kelly: the Forest for the Trees offers an immersive experience aiming to bring something of the forest to the city. An installation of fabric trees, suspended from above, with diffuse lighting and the occasional sound of nature allows you to feel you might be somewhere other than a building downtown. As you walk through the trees you cannot help but touch them, move them, disturb them. After you pass by the trees return to their natural state of being. The work is a subtle comment on how the environment restores itself after humankind has gone. Several large scale paintings accompany the installation. Closing reception: Apr 30, 2-4pm, artist in attendance. More of Kelly’s work can be seen on her website, Instagram @lynnchristinekelly, Twitter @lynnckelly and Facebook: Lynn Christine Kelly Art.
