At once nurturing and destructive, placating and powerful, the dichotomy called Nature is eternally and universally an infinite source of inspiration.  Nature’s Keep includes the work of seven artists responding to the natural world. Curated by Johanna Moore, the exhibit will feature Barbara Bean’s collages, monoprints and pen and ink works depicting woodland edges, Ross Grams’ paintings of the element of fire in nature, Jennifer Keef’s floral-scapes, Jessie Lyle’s intertwining painted and printed patterns found along streams and in fields, Ed McCartan’s bold colorful floral paintings, Louise Philbrick’s assemblages inspired by sacred geometry, music, and the microscopic world, and Shannon Rankin’s collages derived from the healing art of Simpling along with some biomorphic sculptures.
