February 22 - May 4, 2014
The powerful art in this exhibition heightens public consciousness about the intentional or unintentional consequences of environmental exploitation and neglect. Traditional landscape art depicts nature in all its glory in beautiful, pristine condition. The paintings, photographs, and sculptures of Environmental Impact, instead, confront pressing issues of our time, from land development to industrial-scale depletion of natural resources, from the Gulf oil spill to the dangers of nuclear energy, the trashing of the American landscape, and the impact of global warming. This exhibition is produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C., David J. Wagner, Ph.D., Curator/Tour Director.
