Marcia Burtt Studio presents “Forest for the Trees,” an exhibition celebrating the beauty and poetry of trees in contemporary landscape paintings by gallery artists.

Detailed studies compel the viewer to step in close and examine the delicate line and intricate natural design while panoramic scenes or broad brush strokes and abstract shapes encourage the viewer to step back and ponder the big picture.
