Short Description: 

Togetherness by Mary Ann Kelly of Northampton, MA  is an abstract installation made of copper roof sheeting and wire.

Artist Description: 

"This sculpture is made of reused weathered copper roof sheathing in precut widths ranging from 1/4" to 12". The copper tendrils are wrapped and intertwined around and between the selected trees creating lines and shapes to represent the energy they hold between them. This bold, graceful, organic three-dimensional "drawing" can be view from all sides as it catches the light throughout the day. The copper tendrils enfold, undulate, mimic, and play out into space, creating a life of their own between two ladder-like tree-embodying spaces i n togetherness."

Togetherness was inspired by the poem on marriage by Kahlil Gibran in the book <i>The Prophet</i>.
