Description: New England artist Joseph Wheelwright's haunting tree figures invite a dialogue between the natural and the manmade. Ranging up to 27 feet tall, these fantastic, anthropomorphic sculptures were created from trees on Wheelwright's land in Vermont. Turned upside down, bifurcated trunks become legs, and roots are transformed into heads and arms. The exhibition will be on view through May, 2012.
