Gathering Leaves

Guest Curator- Cheryl Christian

There is something about leaves that draws artists to capture them in paint and fabric. Perhaps it's the riot of color on an autumn day in New England. Line that expresses dynamism and flow. Varying textures to be explored and savored. Shapes that intrigue and resonate. Leaves work powerful magic; they can lead us into the forest, encourage us to look up in wonder, or provide the backdrop for a chair that invites us to sit awhile and contemplate their fleeting beauty and the fragility of life.
