“Soul of a Tree” highlights power of woodlands

John Napoli’s “Franklin Park Treehouse Studio” evokes the Spirit of the “Soul of a Tree” exhibition.

D&R Greenway Land Trust’s Johnson Education Center galleries in Princeton, N.J, take to the forest for “Soul of a Tree,” on view through April 20, with a reception with the artists from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 16.

Refreshments will be served.

Artists include Tasha O’Neill’s “Forest Bathing” and John Napoli, Michael Pascucci and Sean Carney. The exhibit highlights the healing power and inspiration of the woods.

RSVP for the reception at 609-924-4646 or rsvp@drgreenway.org. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Visit drgreenway.org for information.

A special evening on March 22 with Mira Nakashima, daughter of world-class wood sculptor George Nakashima, will include a talk about the family’s woodworking legacy and a book-signing of Mira’s book, “Nature Form and Spirit: The Life and Legacy of George Nakashima.” A second book also will be offered for sale, titled “The Soul of a Tree: A Master Woodworker’s Reflections.”

Nakashima pieces will be displayed and available for purchase as part of the exhibition at both the Opening Reception on March 16 and on the evening of March 22. Pieces will include a three-legged stool, candle holders, pencil holders and bread boards. This is a unique opportunity to both own a Nakashima piece of art and support conservation of trees and forests.
