Beyond the bark, wood is a naturally expressive medium; all of our regional trees have some distinct and celebrated characteristics. The Hidden Art of Trees showcases some of the Midwest’s most talented wood artisans and the materials that inspire them. The grain, the color, and even random defects in the wood motivate these artists to create some of the most stunning and unique furniture and bowls.
Featured artists: Mike Jarvi, Greta de Parry, Matthew Osborn, Michael Doerr, Sean "Lucky" Rice, Celia Greiner, Kelly Bresnahan, and Lou Pignolet.
The Hidden Art of Trees is a collaboration among the Chicago Botanic Garden, Philip Davis, Mike Jarvi, and Horigan Urban Forest Products.
