On the Nature of Things
Lois Kampinsky cribbed the name of her latest exhibition of paintings from the title of a monumental poem by Lucretius from the 1st century BCE, which explained the natural world. Though the lofty title suggests otherwise, hers is a playful look at animals and plants that have captivated her imagination.
ReClaimed ReUsed RePurposed
Sustainable Art for the Planet
Featuring: Jessica Beels – Robin Bell – Julia Bloom – Gloria Chapa – Pat Goslee – Liz Lescault – Erwin Timmers
ReClaimed ReUsed RePurposed, curated by Molly Ruppert, is the first in a short series of exhibitions focused on the climate crisis facing our world. This show explores the role and work of artists who respect the planet by their use of materials. The participating artists share a belief in the importance of protecting the planet by respecting the natural world and finding ways to reuse its byproducts by looking at the artistic potential of waste produced of manufacturing, and by reusing the bits and pieces left by the inevitable breakdown of everyday objects.
