In Nature’s Grasp

March 16 - June 16, 2024 

In Nature’s Grasp explores the idea of the sublime in nature, as articulated by the Romantic philosopher Edmund Burke more than 250 years ago. Burke saw nature as capable of generating the strongest sensations in its beholders: astonishment, awe, terror, and a sense of danger. Employing a variety of media, the artists in this exhibit explore humanity’s relationship to the natural world, facing unsettling darkness as well as beauty. Participating artists include Jeffrey Blondes, Shawn Dulaney, Richard Fishman, Renee Greenlee, Rick Harlow, Jai Hart, Marcy Hermansader, Athena LaTocha, Ron Milewicz, Eileen Murphy, and Lily Prince.
