Melanie Walker, Ghost Forest (detail), print on silk, 2020.

Ghost Forest: Works by Melanie Walker

Melanie Walker’s works on fabric evoke the experience of wandering among the trees of an aspen forest; gentle yet powerful, fragile but enduring.

Sept. 26 – Dec. 6, 2020

Freyer – Newman Center

Stretching upward like trees or drifting across walls like falling leaves, her textile pieces are a contemplative reverie on our origins in nature and the landscapes that continue to sustain us. Ghost Forest offers a space to reflect on the memories that connect us to wild places, and to one another.
