There is a wild mystery to the woodlands. The interlacing canopy of trees, tall trunks like columns, untamed growth of the forest floor, and all the animals that find shelter there make it a magical place where anything can happen. In Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, he fills the woods with all manner of creatures, fairies, and enchantments, that the humans in the story become a part of. In Roald Dahl’s The Minpins, the forest represents an overwhelming world of majestic trees, where little people live in the trees and have tiny roads by connecting branches. In C. S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, there is a castle made of ice that lies in the heart of a frozen forest, where the White Witch keeps a spell over Narnia whereby it is always winter. Forests and glades have always served as inspiration for writers and artists to create a world of mystery and enchantment–the woodlands are challenging and untamed, a place where anything can happen.

Stargarden exhibition was hosted by The DaVinci Alliance on September 1, 2017 from 6 to 9:30pm, and included the artwork of 23 artists from various parts of the nation. The artists were: Antonietta Kies, Phyllis Gorsen, Jessica Libor, Jingyi Wang, Richard Buchanan, Cassandra Bacon, Lindsay Rapp, Ting Ting Hsu, Caterine Sanchez, Nathan Durnin, Gabrielle Chapman, Haleigh Keen, Bryan Guglielmi, Julianna Wells, Karen Lowry, Erin Paulson, Alayne Abrahams, Charissa Schulze, Daniel Boyer, Marshall Jones, Bryant Girsch, Greg Fisher, and Bryan DeProspero.
The artwork was primarily 2 dimensional, although one sculpture was present: a fascinating pinhole-inspired tableau. The work all displayed a continuity in keeping with the ideas of stars, celestial movements, moonlit gardens, and the growth of earthly things contrasted with the eternal shimmer of the heavens.
The evening’s entertainment was provided by Seth Aaron Jones and Christy Irizarry, a Philadelphia based singer-songwriter performing duo. A starry, festive photo booth proved the perfect opportunity for visitors, collectors, and artists to pose and take a souvenir Polaroid home. Below are selected works from the show.
