One more for Berlin folks: Next Friday, a beautiful forest-themed show will be opening at Strychnin Gallery.

From the press release:

"In concordance with the United Nation's International Year of Forests, Strychnin Gallery presents 'The Enchanted Forest' an international charity group show curated by Yasha Young and Giovanni Cervi that is dedicated to the forests and their inhabitants all over the world.

The show should remind people of the drastic damage that is constantly done to our forests as well as their beauty, uniqueness and importance.

Many lovingly and elaborately crafted sculptures as well as paintings and photographs by over 30 international artists will display both the desolation of deforestation and the forest‘s magic and liveliness that we have to save.

10 percent of the price of every sold artwork will be donated to a project of the WWF!"

What impresses me particularly about the line-up is the huge number of female artists including great young talents like Lindsey Carr (below) whose deep love and fascination for biology and painting are very visible in her extraordinary and forever growing symbiotic menagerie.
