Time Around Trees| Tansy Lee Moir, Eoin Cox & Catherine Lilley

Time Around Trees| Tansy Lee Moir, Eoin Cox & Catherine Lilley

Saturday 7 March - Sunday 22 March
10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Opening night | Friday 6 March

For her latest exhibition, Tansy Lee Moir is joined by two other artists who share her passion for woodlands and who also spend much of their time around trees. The exhibition will feature drawings, paintings, carvings and prints which celebrate trees, wood and woodlands.

This exhibition examines woodland at different scales, from the powerful presence of a veteran tree, to the intimate surfaces of trees and the plants and organisms that inhabit them.  All the works are made as a direct response to an aspect of woodland; the dynamic curve of a twisted trunk, the texture and structure of a sheet of bark, the delicate detail in a damp tangle of lichen. Together, they invite us to look with fresh eyes at the trees and woodlands around us.
