Upcoming Exhibit:

The Landscape in Flux Exhibit by Scott Taylor and Mike Blazek

The Landscape in Flux: Scott Taylor and Mike Blazek

"The Landscape in Flux" features two local photographers who respond intuitively to the fluidity of the world around them. Each artist presents a very personal vision while sharing themes of presence, impermanence, and the insistent reach of nature's power. Together, Taylor and Blazek explore the unsettled yet persistently beautiful place the landscape occupies for us in the age of the Anthropocene.
