The (Not So) Secret Life of Plants

Opening reception Thursday, September 10, 5-7pm

Plants are the foundation on which most visible life on the planet exists.  They are under stress, with diminishing natural environments and the very real possibility that many plants may become extinct even before humans are aware of their existence.  This exhibition will explore the nature of plants and how humans interact with them, from the forest to the home.

Artists in this exhibition: Thea Clark, John Edmark, Dana Fritz, Jim Jacobs, Ming-Jer Kuo, Jessica Lagunas, Sam Metcalf, Lina Puerta, Lindsay M. Robbins, Martina Shenal, Linda Stillman, Adam Swart, Yeon Ji Yoo, Rachel Yurkovich.

Creative Insomnia

Posted on October 7, 2012 at 9:45pm 0 Comments

My work in the studio is spent going back and forth between mining the old ideas and ushering in the new. Truthfully my mind is many steps ahead of my hands. I think I have always lived with  creative insomnia.
