The Life of Pine art show with pastels and watercolors by Ypsilanti artist, Dennis Gordon will be at Ypsilanti’s Whittaker Road Library until January 30. The theme of the art show is the life and times of an Eastern White Pine tree. The show chronicles the dangerous and dramatic life of a pine tree.While one might not think of a pine tree’s life as all that exciting, it is filled with uncertainties and whether the pine tree recognizes it as such, plenty of beauty and drama pass before it.

Memory, Time, and Private Spaces is a group exhibition featuring the current work of Christine Bruxvoort, Cathy Jacobs, and Carolyn Reed Barritt. Twenty-four works of art are presented, including paintings, drawings, and video installations. Drawing on their own observations, memories, and dreams, the collective body of work reflects each artist-s desire to invite viewers into an intimate world. The exhibition includes the energetic oil paintings of Cathy Jacobs, whose brightly colored, figurative work harbors mysterious undertones; Carolyn Reed Barritt-s quiet works on paper that reveal imaginary portraits and melancholy still lifes with a limited palette; and the sculptural video installations of Christine Bruxvoort that intimately investigate the delicate phase between puberty and adulthood. Exhibition: January 11th - February 24th. Reception: Friday, January 11th 6pm-8pm.Gallery Talk: Saturday, February 9th 1pm-2:30pm.
