ART | ‘Tree Hugs’ 

Pen and ink artist Kristina Hutch Matthews' lovely new body of work depicts anthropomorphized arbor. At a glance the finely detailed illustrations appear to be portraits of gnarled and knotty trees, but they quickly become dryads, folding their limbs around one another in tender embraces, firmly rooted and adorned by vine diadems, flowers, and leaves.

The work will be exhibited in "Tree Hugs: A Celebration of the Wisdom and Healing Energy of Trees as a Guide for Humanity," opening at Penfield Arts Center's RepARTee Gallery (2131 Fire Mile Line Road), on Wednesday, October 25, with a reception at 6 p.m. The show also includes a guided meditative tour by Matthews, accompanied by Mike Mattice's musical responses to the art. "Tree Hugs" continues through December 14. Gallery hours are Thursday and Friday, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, 2 to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 764-3493. Preview the work at kristinahutchmatthews.com.
