Out of the Woods
Arbor Day Tree Talk and Art Opening

April 27, 2018 is Arbor Day and Woodruff’s Art Center is collaborating with Bartlett Tree Experts featuring an Arbor Day and Tree Care talk at 5:00pm followed by an art reception 5:30-7:30pm to kick off a new exhibit entitled “Out of the Woods” . The exhibit will be on view through June 9th. This event is part of Art Week, an award winning, ten day festival featuring affordable art events in Massachusetts. http://www.artweekma.org/

Tim Pinzino, an arborist from Bartlett Tree Experts of Osterville, will be at Woodruff’s Art Center at 5:00pm to give a talk about Arbor Day and caring for trees. The event is free but pre-registration is requested. The art opening will follow at 5:30 until 7:30pm

“Out of the Woods” is an eclectic exhibit featuring work by artists Julie DeMello, Chris O’Dell Ferguson, Carol Flax, Amy Rice and Candice Ronesi. The artists use diverse mediums with a prominent commonality; trees have proven to be their subject of choice.

Julie DeMello’s piece “Reaching Ballerina” is a black and white photograph of a single tree with complex textures reminiscent of Ansel Adams.

“Sleeping” is a tree masterfully rendered by Chris O’Dell Ferguson using a combination of acrylic paint and pyrography, the technique of wood burning.

Carol Flax uses paper mosaic in her work “Eminent Domain”, showing a buck in the snow emerge from a backdrop of woods.

“Beyond the Trees” by Candice Ronesi is a richly detailed acrylic painting which draws you down the tree-lined bike path of the Cape Cod Canal.

Out of the Woods is certain to appeal to tree lovers and art lovers alike.

Woodruff’s Art Center hours are Monday through Saturday 9-5 and Sunday 11-5. For directions and more information about Woodruff’s please visit www.woodruffsartcenter.com
