Beth Galston (SMVisS’81) is featured in a new show at the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA called Branching Out: Trees as Art. Galston is a sculptor who builds architectural-scale environments based on a interest in light and the quality of space. Using delicate materials such as metal mesh, resin, and plants, she creates multilayered spaces through which viewers move and interact. For this exhibition, Galston created a 300-foot rope made of acorn caps she collected from under a single red oak in Boston’s Arnold Arboretum. The exhibit will be on view through September 20, 2015.
