Nature Worship Artist Talk

Thursday, October 11, 2018 | 7 PM

With artists Kim Abeles, Kelly Berg, Rebecca Campbell, and Catherine Ruane

In accordance with their current group exhibition Nature Worship, Mash Gallery will be hosting an evening of artist talks with Kim Abeles, Kelly Berg, Rebecca Campbell, and Catherine Ruane.  The talk will take place on Thursday, October 11th at 7pm.

The term Nature Worship is defined as a system of religion based on the veneration of natural phenomena—for example, celestial objects such as the sun and moon and terrestrial objects such as water and fire.The exhibition Nature Worship examines the portrayal of nature beyond a system of religion more as a means to celebrate the importance of all livings things. It addresses our current global concern for our environment without delivering a sermon. The works in this exhibit span from the literal use of the landscape in painting, photography and sculpture to abstracted and subtle pieces that suggest a reverence to nature that are not so apparent. All the work is highly conceptual and expertly crafted. Andi Campognone states, “It is my intention that this collection of beautiful, powerful work arouses the viewer and strengthens their desire to respect and protect the natural world.” This artist lineup includes makers, that throughout their artistic careers, have made a practice of incorporating nature or the landscape in their work not as a passive background but as a bold contemporary subject.
