Birch Tree Gallery – a venue for fine-crafts, prints and works on paper opened its doors in March 2017. The gallery focuses on art works that have roots in nature – whether in materials, inspiration or thematic elements. The birch tree image is very simple, but powerful. The strong visual and tactile quality of its bark embodies many of the same qualities that differentiate fine crafts from other arts - physicality of the art medium, texture, and time to master technical skills to produce the works.
