Tree Huggers Exhibit

April 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - May 19, 2018 @ 4:00 pm

Trees will bloom in the form of wire, wood, fiber, clay and paint this April 20 when the “Treehuggers” exhibit opens at Flow Gallery, a body and home adornment shop in historic downtown Marshall.

Featuring the works of over a third of Flow’s contributing artists, “Treehuggers” promises to be a delight to the senses. Experience exquisite, carved clay sculptures by Nina Kawar, stunning wood carvings by Tom Fluharty, furniture that pushes the boundaries by Bucky Parker and Ken Wheeler, ink and watercolor art by Jaqueline Maloney, mixed-media pieces and fiber art by several artists. Marshall-based sculptor Peter Dallos created a tree sculpture with copper and steel elements to display how industrialization is taking over the forest. A set of tree-inspired jewelry is even in the mix.

The month-long exhibit will begin with an opening reception on Friday, April 20 at 5:30 p.m. and will run through Saturday May 19. All “Treehuggers” work will be on sale, but will stay on display until the end of the show.
