DESCRIPTION

The Painting Center is pleased to present Natural/Constructed Spaces I curated by Marianne Van Lent and Galen Cheney. Contemporary artists are painting their impressions of the constructed world and its impact on natural spaces, which underscores our persistent need to understand ourselves through space. This survey highlights the diversity in each subject and points to the similarities and connections, which bridge the ‘Elysian fields’ to the ghetto and the shining metropolis to the underworld. Natural/Constructed Spaces I brings together 33 artists who treat this subject in ways as varied as the land, itself. There will be a panel discussion for Natural/Constructed Spaces I held on June 21 from 4 to 5 pm.
