Park Forest, IL–(ENEWSPF)–April 28, 2016. Tall Grass Arts Association’s exhibit ‘From Earth,’ features more than 70 works that demonstrate the wonder and pleasure artists find in studying plants – from seeds and bulbs to leaves, blooms, bark, branches and grasses. The exhibit will open on April 30 and run through June 4. A reception will be held on Saturday, April 30 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Gallery. Both the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
From wildly colorful and exhuberent to quietly respectful of every delicate detail, artists find joy in studying and expressing the forms, patterns and symbolic meanings they find in plants.
