  • Open Eye Cafe Carrboro, NC (map)

Reception during April's Art Walk April 13 5-7

“Homestead,” is a collection of works in acrylic, ink and watercolor by Lauren deSerres. The paintings are investigations and celebrations of the fauna and medicinal flora from The Proud Chicken Farm and Studio homestead in Pittsboro, NC. 

The plants featured in the paintings feature medicinals from passion flowers to comfrey leaves. In addition to their healing properties for humans, these medicinal plants also attract a host of pollinators. Among them are the much loved honey bees that we are so often reminded of when we think of the global impact that humans have had on the environment. Also featured in the collection are chickens, the great comedians of the homestead. Laughter, too, is great medicine.
