Considering the Source
We are pleased to present an exhibition of seven artists whose works reference the ever-inspiring mother of us all: Nature. Some do this directly, while others raise questions by taking a more subversive route. Must civilization and nature be at odds? Can one exist without the expense of the other? Trees can compose an enchanting forest. Yet, when strategically planted, they can also be the barrier between you and your neighbor. Controlling the natural environment can be perceived as a triumph or a tragic mistake, depending on ones point of view.
Artists in the show: Karen Barbour, Yuichi Hirako, Liam Jones, Erik Parra, Gail Tarantino, Sho Tsunoda, and Anne Veraldi.
We are also pleased to present a special video installation by Nate Pagel, a San Francisco-based media artist whose installation work involves public and private spaces, both urban and natural environments and focuses public and personal awareness in order to effect social change.
