Changing Landscapes: A Shift from Rural to Urban

October 11 – November 30, 2012

Over the last 200 years, as the nation shifted its output from agriculture to industry, people moved from rural to urban areas. This shift redefines one’s relationship to the land and often results in a lack of connection to the natural world. Evidence suggests that spending less time outdoors negatively impacts one’s health and well-being.

With growing populations living in cities, it is critical that people connect to the natural environment, but where does nature exist in urban spaces? We ask artists to consider the possibilities.

I went to the opening on Friday and enjoyed seeing the relationships between my work and some of the other pieces in the show. In this picture my pieces are in the foreground:
