Trees Make Seeds Make Trees: Copse #1 :
Chris Burch + Geoff Galve
E.A.S.T Open Hours: Saturday and Sunday, November 13 + 14, 20 + 21, 11AM-6PM
Trees Make Seeds Make Trees is a new series that attempts to articulate my fascination with the seed as an example of possibility, growth and change. The seed is a mysterious enclosure with vast potential, I choose to mystify it and accentuate it's mystery by exaggerating the size and proportion of seed to tree. The trees themselves are new incarnations of trees that have fallen in the woods and have later been collected. The space created by the conjoined branches of the four trees is meant for contemplation and at it's most successful will be well integrated with the space around it while carving out it's own little environment to be separately experienced.

Opening Reception and Poetry Reading: November 19, 6–9 pm
Featuring work by Kelly Rae Burns, Kristina Felix, Margot Holtman, Jules Buck Jones, Jonathon Keats,and Jill Pangallo
Anthropogenesis showcases the work of six contemporary artists who use animal imagery in ways ranging from exercises in draftsmanship to explorations of non-human consciousnesses. Jonathan Keats’ ballet for honeybees assumes an insect audience and performers. Jules Buck Jones’ new paintings of birds, reptiles and amphibians reference mankind’s taxonomic organization of animal species. Other artists, like Margot Holtman and Kelly Rae Burns, merge totemic human and animal forms, while others relate human and animal identities. Anthropogenesis considers animals and animal behavior as an artistic source.

Sand Castles have different connotations for people. It has the sad sweet memories of childhood. Sand castles crumbling one after another resemble human civilizations as well as the temporal aspect of everyday life. As we get older, we forget the early times of play and memory and concentrate on our busy lives. But with all that we do and make, anything we do is nothing more than castles in the sand to be washed away by time and human experience.
