Hypha: Gifts from Strangers
March 4 - 31
The Hypha free nursery is a local collaborative project to spread plants and ideas. Plants are propagated and given away as gifts. Hypha incorporates artmaking, storytelling, and ethnobotany to provide cultural context and connection to the plants that comprise our landscape. Select plants are accompanied by a handmade letterpress card and are mapped to illustrate the potential of such networks.
This exhibition showcases artwork produced in 2014 by Shannon Welles and Lark Preyapongpisan to accompany the plants given away and the map of the first year of networking.
The artists invite plant lovers and people who appreciate letterpress art to a reception on Thursday, March 12th from 5 to 7PM.
The 10th annual Garden Lovers' Book Sale is April 3rd and 4th
