The Disappearance of Our Forest

a nature installation by Allison McElroy on exhibit January 6 – February 22, Reception February 1 from 5 – 7pm.

In the forest there are no headlines, no breaking news alerts,
no cell phones and no internet service.

In the forest we are surrounded by beauty, the smell of pines, sounds of birds in
the trees.
As we walk;
we walk on an empire of insects that tend the forest floor.

Sadly our forest are disappearing at an alarming rate.

My installation is to bring awareness to this loss and how it will effect daily life as well as
life for our future generations. The art that hangs on the wall stands as a signifier, a
visual image of my personal grief to see us deprived of something of such great value.
