I'm happy to announce the opening of my group exhibition at the Cape Cod Museum of Art for the exhibition Healing Nature. Exhibition Dates: March 29 – May 27, 2018 My image Purpose, Inspired (below, with details) is part of the exhibition. Healing Nature: Human Vision, Art & the Environment We are in the midst of a turbulent time for the interaction of human activity and forces of nature. Through this exhibition, artists express their relationship to the natural world and their response to the issues confronting our environment.
Curator Mark Adams' statement: The idea of “healing nature” reads both ways. It could signify nature’s power to heal us through our immersive experiences in the world but it also reads as a strong admonition, with “healing” as a word of action. Artists are keen observers, participating deeply in the natural world, from the micro-world of the garden to the seafloors and wildernesses that we must strive to reach. The images in the exhibition are powerful and range from the subtle to the dramatic. They express a direct experience of the natural world, and a human connection to our place in the natural world. In art, there needn’t be an explicit message or an editorial — no matter how much the world needs all our articulate images to bring us closer to harmony with the environment. Here, themes of connection and healing and nature’s importance are all represented, sometimes in intangible ways using visual languages that provoke questions and illuminate how the world works.

This exhibition is a little cosmos, a platform to observe nature keenly, to ask questions about the earth’s systems and to make commitments that these inspirations will continue to make life rich for those that follow us.
