The first in a series of exhibitions that celebrate the emerging artist, this show spotlights Atlanta-based artist Beth Lily, whose digital photographic series “The Myth of Trees” looks at the reverence we feel when we encounter trees in the landscape. The concept of sacred space is examined as she retraces the steps of early explorers who roamed the forests of the Southeastern region centuries ago. Her use of digital photography is compelling because its modern and ever-changing technical nature is in direct contrast with the ancient forests that inspired the work. Lily's work has been in numerous solo and group exhibitions, and can be found in several public and private collections, including the Odgen Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans.
