When artist/curator Andy Cook read the 1926 book “Sand and Foam” by Kahlil Gibran, it became part of his life. The book, and especially the following lines, inspired Cook to organize an art exhibition: “Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky. We fell them down and turn them into paper that we may record our emptiness.” This is the third installment of the group art show, music and poetry event. The 19 artists in “Trees are Poems” include Joe Autry, Aron Conaway, Claudia Hammer and Shawna Khalily. It opens during the Aug. 26 F.A.T. Friday Hop from 6-9 p.m., with a percentage of the sales donated to Kentucky Heartwood, a non-profit organization protecting Kentucky forests.
