FALL VIRTUAL GROUP EXHIBITION
There are many different ways to approach the subject of nature in art. Art can open our eyes to the intricacy and beauty of the natural world. It can simply be a pretty picture that appreciates nature for what it is... or it can be a challenging piece expressing our complex human connection to nature. Art can serve a purpose beyond being an object of beauty: it can also address pressing environmental issues and topics about conservation, sustainability, preservation, biodiversity, and threatened habitats. Art has the ability to interact with and educate the viewer about these issues, spreading awareness about such important topics. We feel an instinctual need to take care of the things we feel connected to. Art can help renew, or spark anew, our connection with nature. The selections in this exhibition have brought together seven artists who evoke these sentiments in their pieces: David Vigon, Jessica Schulman, Steven “Fritz” Weiss, Richard Resnick, Juan Carlos Pinto, Christopher Fiore, Villo Varga and Gauthier Saintilus.
“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrain of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
