Erin Jane Nelson’s One Entanglement, Under Clouds & Katherine Mitchell’s Hearing the Trees, Chapter III
August 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 2, 2021
Erin Jane Nelson says of One Entanglement, Under Clouds: “There are three frogs in this show, modeled on the pagan Triple Goddess. There is a maiden frog, a mother frog, and a crone frog. Right now, I would be in the mother frog stage of my own life, but I am not a mother, and I have no desire to be. So where does this leave me? Perhaps I am like the frog itself, fated to adapt to new ways of being, destined to mutate my body to live in the world on my own terms. This exhibition is a meditation on the lifecycle, of moving from one stage to another while denying the rites of passage one phase requires.” (Pictured is her painting “The Word for World is Flower”)
Katherine Mitchell says about Hearing the Trees, Chapter III: “These works began when I discovered that a white oak in front of my house had become diseased. This series of paintings/drawings on paper were begun as talismans for the tree, and for me. As I worked, this tree began to symbolize all trees and our endangered environment. For some years I had tried to reconcile my concerns in visual art, and my environmental concerns. This door opened for me with this body of work.”
Both shows on view August 7-October 2. Virtual artist talk August 31 at 7 p.m.
