Please join us for the opening reception and gallery talk for "What a Wonderful World," an exhibition that highlights the environmental art of Binh Danh, Rena Detrixhe, Ryan Hoover, and Marion Wilson. Their work shares common interests in science, memory, and the lasting impact of human interactions on the future of our planet. Binh Danh's daguerreotypes—part nostalgic vision, part environmental cry—document the natural beauty of the currently protected land in Yosemite National Park. Rena Detrixhe creates dirt rugs using Oklahoma soil, sifting the collective memories embedded in the dust. Ryan Hoover’s tree forms are created by an algorithm that the artist has written to simulate natural growth patterns. Marion Wilson's photographs and drawings are often through the lens of ecology, where her attention has been drawn to the study of stress-tolerant and overlooked plant species that live in micro environments—particularly, moss. The reception and gallery talk are free and open to all!
