Promise and Peril: A Study in Biodiversity

The natural world is in a state of constant flux. It seems that more and more often, we hear about the decline of yet another precious animal or plant species and the subsequent efforts to protect it from extinction.  Our greatest opportunity to make conservation a priority is through widespread awareness and visual art is just such a channel through which to convey the message.
Featured artists Isabella Kirkland and Jeffrey Long employ different techniques, but converge in their commitment to capturing elements of nature in order to shed light on the ecological challenges we face.  The result is a vivid and eye-opening exhibition opening this February in the Hazel Wolf Gallery.
