Artwork of the Week: Social Network by Bridgette Guerzon Mills

“Social Network”

woven and crocheted installation

“This is my second year installing artwork for Lake Roland’s Art on the Trail exhibit. I have two pieces along the Red Trail. This fiber art piece is called “Social Network” and hangs suspended between two trees. I recently learned about the underground fungal network that connects plants and trees to one another. Scientists are learning that the trees use this extensive fungal network to communicate with one another. I find that to be so fascinating and knew that down the road I would have to create my interpretation of this wonderful process. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity this year to see my vision through.”
