This exhibition will examine the multi-dimensional importance of the tree to all living forms on the planet--- from its aesthetic value as an artistic construction to its functional value in supporting and enhancing human life.  The tree's aesthetic value will be amplified by paintings, photographs and works in wood by FRANK Gallery artists and by the hosting of  "Bending Sticks: An Evening with Patrick Dougherty" on Friday July 18th . This event will include the screening of the film "Bending Sticks" which  highlights the work of environmental artist Patrick Dougherty's extraordinary and monumental scale works built with live saplings.The film will be shown at the Varsity Theater at 7:00pm followed by a reception at FRANK Gallery at which the artist will be present. Tickets are $30 and space is limited.  More information about the documentary at http://bendingsticksthefilm.com/
