Using a narrative of social engagement to generate conversations, George Lorio’s work comments on ecological destruction and renewal. Sculptural work is created from fallen trees, branches, and bark. Trees are used as a metaphor for healing and regeneration. The tree bark, in particular, resembles the skin of the human body as it conforms to the tree and regenerates year after year.

Montpelier Arts Center is located at 9652 Muirkirk Rd., Laurel, MD
