THE LINDEN STREET GALLERY AT SUMMER STAR WILDLIFE SANCTUARY PRESENTS:
Boylston, MA— The Linden Street Gallery at Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary presents the exhibit Elements, paintings by George Herman. This exhibit will open on June 6, 2015 and will be on view until August 25, 2015.
Herman’s paintings represent the elements seen and experienced in one’s everyday life….a walk in the woods, the home, the dog, the sky, the passing view from a speeding train, but presented through Herman’s unique painting process: multiple layers of painting and pouring, scraping and sanding, replicating the process of growth, destruction, decay and rebirth that exists in the natural world. With depth of feeling and vision, the image gradually emerges, and is seen as if for the first time.
The mission of the Linden Street Gallery is to instill an appreciation for the reflective and contemplative experiences of nature by engaging its visitors through gallery exhibitions, talks by artists, and other dynamic programming. The gallery nourishes the spirit by celebrating the interdependencies between humans and the natural environment.
Nestled in forty-five acres of forest, the Linden Street Gallery is located within the LEED Gold Trailhead House of the recently opened Summer Star Wildlife Sanctuary at 690 Linden Street, Boylston, Massachusetts. The wildlife sanctuary features wetland and woodland habitats that provide homes for wildlife and includes a 1.5-mile trail loop for outdoor exploration. The sanctuary honors nature through wildlife protection, art exhibitions focusing on nature, outdoor tours, educational programs, and wildlife releases in collaboration with the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University.
