Endangered! opened on August 5th to an enthusiastic crowd of nature and animal lovers, friends and family, and of course, art advocates. The Endangered theme called upon local artists to explore the idea of threats to our planet, but how they interpreted those threats moved beyond the environment.
This show embraces the somber reality of the endangered species list but also expands the concept beyond the natural world to include ways of life, values, and even laws that can be interpreted as endangered.
Endangered is a juried exhibition featuring over 40 regional artists. Winners were selected by our guest judge, photographer Patrick (Buzz) Hayes.
If you missed opening night, not to worry. We've captured the evening in the gallery of photos below and on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
The exhibition will conclude on August 28th with a casual chat between exhibiting artists and the public. The Artists Talk is an opportunity to hear the story and the how-to behind the artwork in the exhibition.
Endangered is on view August 5-28. Art is available for purchase.
Hear exhibiting artists spill the tea on their works and process at our Artists Talk on August 28 from 3:00-4:00pm.
