"Trees and Things," July 2016 Featured Artist Elen Grigg

In July, Brush Strokes Gallery features “Trees and Things” created by artist Elen Grigg. Inspired by her father’s apricot and plum farm, Elen pays homage to the “Hand of God” in her tribute to nature’s gift: trees. Although trees provide shade in summer, fuel in winter, air quality, life giving fruits, and refuge for small creatures, Elen wants us to note their beauty in addition to their practical benefits.

In abstract and realistic detail, Elen brings us the message that trees, our friends and helpers, have a regal stature over us. See this

extraordinary exhibit as well as new works by member artists including artful photography, one-of­-a-kind hand-painted scarves, delicatelybeaded jewelry, fused glass bowls and wall art, and original paintings in all media.

Join us July 1, 2016 for the Artists’ reception from 6-­9 p.m. at Brush Strokes Gallery, located at 824 Caroline Street in downtown Fredericksburg, Virginia.
