Please join us from 5:00-7:00 for photographer Frances N. Laird's Art Opening, where she will be exhibiting her new work. The series is entitled PATHLESS.
Francis's Artist Statement:
In this series I wanted to pay a tribute to the forest and the individuals who, like me, get wrapped up in its magic and powerful myth. These shots cover places mainly throughout California, Oregon and Washington. PATHLESS is a reference Lord Byron's poem, of course: "There is pleasure in the pathless woods ..." This series is also about inventing ones' way outside of society's standards, trying to meet beauty where it's at, wanting to belong in it, greeting encounters of all kinds, and weaving life as an artful fabric. The forest is a tremendous inspiration to all wandering souls.
