Every Day: Finding Meaning in the Ordinary, featuring work by Stephanie Garon, Jon Malis, and Michael McSorley invites us to contemplate seemingly mundane objects in our every day orbit. We look forward to sharing images and insights online throughout the course of the exhibit. Today, we invite you to explore the work of Stephanie Garon, who’s piece, Beholden, constructed of steel and heather grass, is pictured above. The following is an excerpt from Garon’s artist statement:

“My work explores the vulnerability of nature to humanity. I use the juxtaposition of organic materials with steel to personify nature and feminism. Alchemy meets allegory in dynamic forms that change over time: green pine needles fade to brown, cement made from melted snow crumbles, and wind switches orientation of metal sculpture around trees. These natural movements, emphasizing the process of decomposition, capture paradoxes: formalism and fragility, permanence and impermanence, and nature and nurture.”
