Land, Light and Life: Nature through the Eyes of Artists
November 10, 2017 through December 30, 2017
Land, Light and Life: Nature through the Eyes of Artists explores the broad range of strategies used by six contemporary artists to examine the natural world. Artists Andrew Myers, Michael Boonstra, Nancy Watterson Scharf, Monica Helms, Kendra Larson and Craig Goodworth each interpret nature from their own, unique perspective and in a variety of media. Their chosen subjects include a fascination with aerial images of the desert, the dazzling effects of light in the landscape, celebrating the rich visual diversity of life and concern about the rising toll of mass-extinction.
The exhibition is a collaboration between the High Desert Museum and At Liberty, Bend’s new art space and cultural hub, located in the Liberty Theater in downtown Bend at 849 Northwest Wall Street. Land, Light and Life: Nature through the Eyes of Artists represents the Museum’s commitment to community outreach and offers the public an opportunity to experience contemporary art in historic downtown Bend. The exhibition opens Friday, November 10 and may be viewed during the week from Wednesdays through Saturdays, 11:00 am to 6:00 pm, through December 30. Meet some of the artists and enjoy light refreshments during the First Friday Art Walk on Friday, December 1 starting at 5:30 pm.
