Current Exhibition:"A Hundred Trees"
April 25, 2015 - July 25, 2015
The first known depiction of a tree is called the Gua Tewet Tree of Life created on a cave wall 10, 000 years ago in Borneo. Scholars tell us it may depict the ties that bind individuals, families, territories, or spirits to one another. Family tree, hanging tree, feeding tree, flowering tree or the tree of life, all have inspired artists around the world. Art in the Libraries showcases the remarkable talent of 11 California artists using trees in different media.
