Terry Hays: Cosmic Garden
Mar 16, 2019 – Aug 10, 2019

Explore a mesmerizing Cosmic Garden created by artist Terry Hays. Trees, waterfalls and islands populate an exotic landscape embellished with meticulously hand-painted designs and symbols inspired by many divergent cultures. In the Cosmic Garden’s symbolic reality, Hays presents a harmony of opposites suggestive of Jung’s cosmic tree as a universal archetype.
