The Breakneck Road at Hulls Cove has been a summer rendezvous for Native Americans as long as memory exists. On this very spot, Samuel D. Champlain landed in 1604- the first of a tsunami of European visitors to this fragile ecosystem. Owl has seen the world change and has a message for humankind. Step into the sacred space and listen. If you open your heart, Owl has advice to share.

TREE WORK An Arboreal Celebration

May 25 - June 30 2012
Opening Reception, Friday May 25th 5p-8p

Harbor Square Gallery 374 Main St Rockland Maine http://www.harborsquaregallery.com/

I am honored to announce my work has been selected for exhibition at the Harbor Square Gallery in Rockland Maine by the owner, Thomas O'Donovan. This summer, the gallery is presenting "Tree Work: an arboreal celebration." Proceeds from the sale of the work will go towards helping the city of Rockland replace trees in the city. The exhibition will include works in a variety of media celebrating trees and forests- the centerpiece being the oils of Donald Rainville. Participating artists include Harold Garde, Cabot Lyford, Lee Lawson, Ben McGinnis, Imero Gobbato, Eric Hopkins, Joyce Tenneson, Thomas O'Donovan and David Blackwood.
Madam Elephant is the leader of the pack and a matriarch of the family. Head strong and iron-willed, like the tree she came from, yet green- still cutting her teeth. If women could be the president of the United States, their proper title of address would be Madam President. Regally adorned like a Head of State with jewel-like tusks and polished toenails. She decides who to be, a trophy or a hunter.
