tree-zen Or is it treason
May 2 – Jun 30 all-day

tree-zen  Or is it treason?  Two diverse artists. Two concepts of trees and wood. Painter, Sarah Gawens’ work focuses on the devastating imbalance of nature and brevity of life thanks to the destructive nature of humanity. Her ethereal, dematerialized forms reveal the potential of what they could have been before their lives were cut short. Fred Nastvogel, usually working with recycled wood , says that. “Ideas are what got us out of the cave. I express them materially, in the nature of life’s setting. In wood, mostly, on wood, with wood. Each outing instructs: texture, strength, species, finish. Tone, color, knots, cracks. Working in wood is much like marriage. Wood the compleat partner. To make the marriage work I need more Zen.   May 2nd through June 30th.  Opening reception May 11th 4:30—6:30.  Artist’s Talk 5:30.  Off Track Art, 11 Liberty St. Side, Westminster, MD wwwofftrackart.com
