Voluminous in scale yet lightweight and very wearable, with an almost folk-art painterly floral motif belies a bold and fascinating use of materials. 

From the artist: The pieces are made out of plastic shopping bags - they are not coloured by me - I often get asked that. I cut the bags, knit them on fine needles - the blocks of background colour are added during the knitting. I then melt the plastic flat and then layer up the image - as in painting, but I am melting each piece as I work on the image. Slots are cut, and I construct the pieces into a 3-d objects, melting the tabs, and riveting and adding the brooch pin. 

Little thought about floral sprays that adorn humans like fancy packaging... A nod to Otto Künzli’s wall paper brooches, one to Eduard Manet’s small paintings of floral bouquets, another to lavish chocolate box packaging. Plastic, the great imitator, leveling and flattening hierarchies of value.

Nature has always been our closest ally.  During this special time of year, the waning light of summer and early autumn aromas instill a feeling of excitement and beckon us to gaze and contemplate its quiet beauty.  Each work presented in the exhibition reveals something slightly different about how we all interact with the land and perceive its role in our personal lives.  For some it evokes nostalgic memories of the past, for some it’s a cautionary tale of how our environment is ever changing, for better or for worse, into the future.  Sweeping vistas in honeyed color and charcoal drawings of tree creatures will show alongside torched drawings on wood panel of skinny birches and black and white photographs.  Selected artists include Tracy Helgeson, Sue Bryan, Eileen Murphy, Jane Bloodgood-Abrams, Harry Orlyk, Paul Chojnowski, David Konigsberg, Forrest Burch and John Kelly.  An exhibit of black and white landscape photography by Betsy Weis will be on the second floor. 

Capturing the View will be on exhibit November 7th through January 6th with a reception for the artists on Saturday, November 10th from 5-7pm.
