Ronda Richley, a former resident artist of O Gallery inside CityArts Factory, is back for a month! Well-known as "The Tree Lady" for figurative trees, and after being censored by Facebook for her Naked Trees, she has created life-size three dimensional versions of her art. Now you can walk through a forest of her trees and appreciate her view of nature and love of trees. You will never look at a tree the same.
This art installation is created with 80-90% recycled materials, with the three dimensional trees made from corrugated, donated newsprint, crepe paper and tissue papers. It is a creation of a rain forest of trees, an environment to experience and enjoy. There are stories of the trees, their creation (of the art) and inspiration.
Featured during opening night is the body art and headdresses by Michele Lacy, whose live art will be roaming around the forest. Photo opportunities, "live" trees, and a rainforest of art awaits you at the Opening Reception. Don't miss it!
And this is for charity! The artist has selected One Tree Planted and is donating 10% of the proceeds from both from her website www.rondarichley.com and during the event through October 12. There will also be a collection box and a link to the site of the fundraiser, https://onetreeplanted.giv.sh/fundraisers/fnd_a5431c0171be7008 at the event so you can directly donate.
For those who are unable to attend and do not want to miss the event, it is going to be videod, posted on all social media, within two weeks of the event. There is also going to be a Live posting on Facebook giving a tour of the installation scheduled for around 6:30 pm September 20.
