whose quilted hangings reflects her love of trees, water and the
creatures that inhabit the woods. Jim Mikkelsen also has a deep
love for trees and seeks to uncover the inherent beauty in the
wood he sculpts into beautiful organic shapes. The
complementary work of these two artists is combined in a moving harmonious exhibit.
