... Tree Wolf & Other Stories by Tara Krebs  
    ... Exhibition duration ran from November 4th until November 30th, 2012.  
    ... Opening reception was on November 9th, 2012.  
    In this collection of works, artist Tara Krebs draws from her childhood memories of impossible worlds made tangible by her imagination and connectedness to nature.   
.. .. .. ..
    The ripped-from-a-storybook quality to these pieces, along with their vague titles and lack of narrative text allow only a brief glimpse or scene of a story, requiring the viewer’s imagination to fill in the blanks, much in the way that the artist’s own memories of childhood reach out to her through briefly illuminated fragments.  
.. .. .. ..
    While viewing these scenes, it is your responsibility to give life to these characters and the environments in which they dwell. Who are they? What are their roles? What brought them to this point in their story, and what comes next? Are the settings depicted here the product of a child’s imagination, or do they depict a fantastical reality?  
.. .. .. ..
    In allowing this space for interpretation, Tara is promoting the use of and patience for one’s personal sense of wonder in a world where information is immediately accessible- unlike her childhood where people were often left to wonder and imagine the possibilities of their curiosities long before their questions might be answered.
