Exhibition - Family, Trees

Tuesday, Mar 31, 2020 from 12:00pm to 5:00pm


Artists take the stage at the “Family, Trees” exhibition currently on display at the Paula Estey Gallery, A Center for Art & Activism (PEG). “Family, Trees” explores nature’s inter-dependence and the connection between human families, nature’s families and the planet’s sustaining urge to survive. Tricia Jones, Stoney Stone, and Miranda Updike - three of the artists that are taking part in this group show - will give short talks their process and inspirations

“We hosted a jam-picked reception on Leap Day that focused on the activism and spiritual aspect of life’s interconnectedness with nature. Crispin Miller, president of the Friends of Newburyport Trees, discussed his organization’s work in the community, Minister Joel Grossman explored the Jewish Festival of Trees tradition, and artist/actress Cynthia August gave a reading from Peter Wohlleben’s book ‘The Hidden Life of Trees.’ This upcoming reception is all about the artists and their spectacular paintings, photography, mixed media and sculpture on display,” said Paula Estey

The “Family, Trees” exhibition runs through mid-April and features artwork by Cynthia August, Carol Benally, Kay Bice, Jen Groeber, Ryan Kelley, Bonnie Lake, Yvonne Marra Lamoth, Bonita LeFlore, Heidi Newfell, Julia Purinton, Stoney Stone, and Miranda Updike. It also introduces Rick Hayes and Tricia Jones as part of the PEG artists.
