Archway Gallery presents "Regeneration" opening reception
Archway Gallery presents "Regeneration," featuring new works in clay, paint, and glass by Carol Berger, Liz Conces Spencer, and Gene Hester.
In this joint exhibition, Berger, Conces Spencer, and Hester explore nature’s regenerative force in the face of enormous odds. The works in this exhibition reflect the artists’ concern about the impact of human encroachment, the destruction of habitats, and the planet’s survival. The eradication of plant species and diversity through human infringement and global warming, the disappearance of bee colonies and other animal/bird/insect/fish populations, and the devastation of massive pollution in the oceans, landmasses and atmosphere have engendered in each artist a response that celebrates and honors the rapidly shrinking natural world.
Each artist presents works that, created solo or collaboratively, celebrate what may be lost if we do not quickly act. Even though nature has powerful regenerative abilities, it cannot withstand the onslaught of the need for humans to “grow.” Berger’s works in clay along with Conces Spencer and Hester’s works in glass explore visual ideas using the landscape and its natural elements as starting points. Spencer additionally will present dimensional paintings on wood and traditional works on canvas.
The exhibition will remain on view through March 4. The virtual opening & artist talk will be available on ArchwayGallery.com or Facebook Live.
