An opening reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m., Thursday, March 20, for an exhibit of drawings by Liz Ward, in the Michael and Noémi Neidorff Art Gallery at Trinity University. Ward will discuss her work at 5:30, with a book signing following. Ward, a professor of art at Trinity, is the artist behind the beautiful, delicate silverpoint drawings featured throughout W.S. Merwin’s book, Unchopping a Tree, published this month by TU Press.
Ward’s drawings depict the cellular life of trees and illustrate Merwin’s poetic elegance in his description of how to resurrect a fallen tree.
The gallery show is open to the public and will run through April 8.
