Art Opening: Allegory in Light – Photographs by Laurie McGowan

- This event has passed.
Trees communicate. They nurture and care for each other. Inspired by writer Peter Wohlleben (The Hidden Life of Trees) and daily wanderings through the woods, Laurie McGowan captures this in her photographs, celebrating trees and the interplay between nature and light. Falling shadows, beams of light, bark patterns — none of it escapes her eye.
Allegory in Light will be on exhibit from April 1 to 29 at the Harris Center, and is available to view during regular business hours. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, April 2, from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
Artist Bio: Laurie McGowan is the director of the Conant Gallery at Lawrence Academy in Groton, MA, where she teaches photography. Unable to attend artist residencies she had planned for her sabbatical in Italy, Portugal, Costa Rica, and Arizona when COVID-19 shut down travel, she found herself looking for new subjects to photograph. In her own backyard, she discovered the communication of trees. Laurie lives in Peterborough, and exhibits throughout New England. She hopes her love of and connection to nature is resonant in these photographs.
