Lambertville artist Johanna Furst will display her paintings in the East Gallery of The Watershed Center from April 23 – June 14.
A collection of Living Saints paintings explores the connection between humans and trees. The display consists of a dozen oil paintings of various sizes. Furst explains that trees are sacred in many parts of the world and are used as offerings of healing and prayer. She said their purpose is to provide and protect.
“I think about trees and the myriad of ways we have utilized their gifts on this planet. From paper, shelter and food to everyday objects,” Furst said. “In their most natural state, they also create peace and beauty.”
A native of Allentown, Penn., Furst received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan in 1986, graduating summa cum laude. Her family moved to Princeton when she was nine.
Come meet the artist at an opening reception on Wednesday, April 24 from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Wine and light refreshments will be served. Walk-ins are welcome and no RSVP is necessary.
