Tree Veneration Series: Bark HeART

April 14, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Venerate:  to regard with reverential respect or with admiring deference

Join us as we kick off the Tree Veneration art workshop series!  The first class Bark HeArt will be be held on Saturday, April 14th, 12:30-4:30 in our Historic Mule Barn.

Local artist Gerry Moll will lead an investigation into the tradition of carving one’s name or the name of a loved one into a trees bark. The who, when, where and why of tree graffiti will be explored. We will then perform a formal and conceptual reversal as we install symbols made of tree bark onto the surface of wooden architectural structures.

All supplies will be provided, but if you have a good sharp utility knife please bring it with you.  Please wear comfortable work clothes as we will spend most of our time creating art installations.

Registration for individual classes $20 per class for Garden members and $25 per class for non-members.  Participants who register for the entire series in advance save 10%.  Please call 865-832-8717 or email info@knoxgarden.org with any questions.
