Open Call to Artists for Upcoming Exhibit


“The Art of the Forest”

Into the Maine Woods, Patrice Drago

“Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky…”  

– Kahlil Gibran -


A walk amongst the trees can be a sharp and welcome contrast to the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. The poetry of timeless nature provides a renewed perspective, and can help us become grounded and rejuvenated. The beauty of trees – all kinds, in every season — can wash away the distractions, take us outside ourselves and remind us of what is truly important and grand.



Artists are invited to submit works for consideration that include or suggest the poetry of trees.
