More than just Trees

On now is an exhibition by SBA Fellow Pamela Taylor called ‘More than just Trees’. Pamela’s drawings record just one moment in the life of the tree. Young trees become mature specimens, which eventually become over mature, when the crown may begin to diminish in size. One day the tree may be blown down in a storm or die as a result of water logging, drought or fungal disease. Sometimes it may survive such ravages but bear the scars. All these events can be recorded poignantly and dramatically in pen and ink. It is held at Turner Sims Concert Hall, University of Southampton, SO17 1BJ. For more info click here..
