Meet Victoria Elbroch...

"Extraordinary trees, especially ancient oaks, cast a spell over me. Their strange gnarly bark and peculiar anatomy awaken an uncontrollable urge to stop and draw.  These majestic survivors are a metaphor for all I hold dear: wisdom, family, connection, shelter and resilience and as a reminder of the fleeting nature of our lives in comparison to their lengthy life spans. Trees and forests worldwide are in a relentless confrontation with a warming planet. 

It is with awe and respect that I try to alter perceptions with my work, reminding all of us of the threats to, and importance of the natural world.  I have read extensively about how trees communicate through their root systems using the “wood wide web” and look after their families to maintain forest health.  They are themselves ecosystems supporting teaming, invisible life in the branches and under the forest floor.  Through my work I try to encourage people to take the time to imagine both worlds, one above the ground and the other below, seated in the enduring landscape."

Meet Ann Gillespie...

"My artwork is informed by my time spent in nature. I strive to express the beauty and subtleties that surprise me in everyday scenes as well as hint at the mystery of whatever might be “around the bend’ that I can’t quite see. What I paint is an expression of both what I see and what I feel and are fragments of direct observation and memory."
