Co-sponsors Jeffrey Thomas Fine Art and the Murdoch Exhibition Space are pleased to present CANOPY: On Helen Lessick’s Trees, a solo exhibit by Helen Lessick that is a must-see for cultural visitors, art lovers and tree-huggers throughout the summer of 2017.
Lessick has been investigating the imagery and metaphor of plants for decades and CANOPY showcases Lessick’s recent works with trees across the American west. CANOPY explores our experience of and protection by trees. The exhibit coincides with the 30th anniversary of House for Summer, Lessick’s living tree sculpture growing in Portland’s Hoyt Arboretum. CANOPY shows Lessick’s many site-specific installations as well as sculpture, artists’ books and works on paper in one exhibit.
