We Speak for the Trees: A Unique Austin Studio Tour Event at Masonry
"Time spent among the trees is never wasted"- Katrina Mayer
Once upon a time,
There was a beautiful historic sycamore that stood proudly on the Masonry/TreeGarden property in east Austin. After years of watching lovingly over our offices and providing a haven for all the little creatures of TreeGarden, the wise sycamore was cut down in its prime. It was then we decided to honor our dear felled friend by giving her a voice and a time to tell her story…
Part of Big Medium's Austin Studio Tour, We Speak for the Trees is a celebration of life and the inimitable beauty and vibrance of nature. Featuring stunning, one-of-a-kind art pieces made from one historic tree, this unique creative collective will make its debut at the East Austin Studio Tour on November 13th & will run through December 11th (Studio #P21)
Come for the art, stay for the party!
We Speak for the Trees is a can't-miss artistic showcase that will open Saturday, Nov. 13th at 3PM with an epic party co-hosted by Masonry and TreeGarden at our east Austin offices. Talk a stroll along the Save Our Species ArtVenture Trail and get a glimpse of the region’s most beautiful and endangered animals, marvel at the handmade masterpieces imagined from a single tree, then head to the bar for Dripping Springs Vodka sips, Texas Keeper Cider, Vacancy brews and other local libations.
Aaron Stephens, Yadin Kol and Joe Mach + Magick Rackets will be serenading on the Masonry/TreeGarden stage, SoulShine Rhythm Experience will be setting the mood with rhythm circles and Big Frank's will be dishing tasty Tex-Mex and tacos all evening.
Not only will folks get the chance to snag a one-of-a-kind piece of art from the Austin Studio Tour collection, but they can also grab a few karma points by donating to the Forests for Monarchs foundation. Ten percent of art sales will benefit TreeGarden's nonprofit partner and every $1 donated will plant two trees in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve.
This Saturday, help TreeGarden and Masonry celebrate the arts and honor the memory of our beloved sycamore. RSVP to this family-friendly event today at: treegarden.org/rsvp/p/trees
