About the Exhibition

“A weaver, a photographer, and a mixed media artist invite you to spend a moment here, among trees. It is trees that brought the three of us together. Trees are a strong presence for each of us as a life-giving force, providing protection, food, clean air and calm minds.
Join us!”

Jeri Olson McCoy

I grew up in Duluth, MN with beautiful trees everywhere and woods within walking distance in several directions. My family vacations were usually spent camping in any wooded area that my Dad could find. The more remote the better…….up the Sawbill & Gunflint trails, northern Wisconsin & Michigan, in Canada & the Rockies mountains. I loved the solitude, the sound of the wind in the leaves, the birds and rushing water in the creeks. The feeling of quiet, peaceful coziness. While weaving over the last few years, playing with different mediums and techniques, always trying to come up with something different, trees felt like the natural way to go. My favorite being birch trees. I feel like I’m creating my own forest and love to share it with others.

Carol Weiler

I am a photographer whose life journey has always been deeply connected to the visual arts. I started out drawing and painting. My inspiration was often the trees around me. I was taught at an early age to love trees. My home town was full of huge chestnuts and elms, and when they died off, we all suffered.

I have wandered through many environments enriched by trees, curving cedars in northern Ontario, fertile orchards in Minnesota, and ancient olive trees in Italy and Spain. My camera has been my tool to record their individual personalities and allow me to share them with you.

Donna Kuhl

Doll clothes were my first stitching endeavors. It ran in the family: my father sold Singer sewing machines and taught my mother to sew. She came to sew everything but shoes.

I now sew by hand and by machine, layering various fibers and mediums. I alter the surfaces of fabric, I quilt with intention, I stretch the limits of traditional embroidery and I work with layers of wax in encaustic style. I see composite layers in all living things .

Inspiration for my work comes from both the beauty and the struggle in nature and in the everyday lives of us all. I cannot imagine a world without trees. In some way, they are woven into the layers of almost everything.
