Vince Skelly: A Conversation with Trees
On view through April 23, 2023
Claremont Lewis Museum of Art
Claremont, California

“A Conversation with Trees” presents recent work by Claremont artist Vince Skelly. Carving tree trunks, many harvested in the aftermath of the epic wind storm of January 2022, Skelly explores the space between sculptural form and functional object.

Using wood from sustainable sources is always an important part of Skelly’s process. The storm offered not only a bountiful supply of wood but also an opportunity to create new life out of incredible destruction and loss. Some of this work was first presented in a solo show organized by Tiwa Select in Los Angeles and featured in the June 2022 issue of Architectural Digest.

“Vince Skelly: A Conversation with Trees” is generously sponsored by Gould Asset Management LLC with additional funding from West Coast Arborists.
