Sea and Soil Group Exhibition June 6 - July 3, 2015

Sat, Jun 6, 2015
through Fri, Jul 3, 2015
DETAILS

June 6 through July 3, 2015. Open daily 10am to 6pm except Tuesdays.

Sea and Soil
Group Exhibition with Aline Cross, Kathy Dumesnil, Faye Earnest, Pippin Frisbie-Calder, Lee Morais, Elizabeth Simon

Opening Reception: June 6, 2015 6 – 10pm
In many forms, art becomes a method of preservation. Preservation of the self, of a culture, of a memory, of a landscape so close to being lost. There is hope in the moment an artist is able to capture an image in which we are reminded of our sense of wonder with the natural world around us. Sea and Soil is a celebration and an exploration of the ways in which artists are inspired by nature and the multitude of forms this reverence takes. Whether directly creating a visual vocabulary to make scientific data approachable or capturing the pure tranquility of the space where the line of sea and soil is blurred, these pieces remind us that we are more one with the dirt between our toes and the sea mist that surrounds us than we even know.
