About the Exhibit: 

Sue Ellen Romanowski has selected quilted pieces that depict trees at various times of the year. Her fondness for the beauty of everyday objects, the flow and rhythm of color, and even a sense of playfulness are all reflected in her use of fabrics. The animals that live among our treasured trees are the subjects of Christy Lemp’s paintings.  Lemp portrays the essence of her subjects in loose and spontaneous-appearing brushwork along with “juicy and joyful colors” with the goal of creating a sense of energy and emotion inherent in each scene.
