There's a new 'enchanted forest' and it is at the Tryon School of Arts and Crafts in Tryon, North Carolina. The centerpiece of the show is a towering tree made by Mary and Terry Dill. With 'enchanted forest' as a theme, sculptors, wood carvers, potters, photographers, painters and jewelry makers got to work on objects both realistic and imaginative. Hope Rodearmer created "fairy chairs," each one its own fanciful landscape. Kate Stockman fashioned a line of tree-themed jewelry. Others made gnomes, gnome houses, sculpted busts and even two dragons.
The show, which includes over a dozen of Ruthie Rosauer's tree photographs, runs until August 30.
Ruthie photographs trees because she loves them.
