Anthrobotanical: People, Plants, & Place Gallery Opening

September 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

An exhibition exploring the connections of people, plants, and place.

Most people know that we rely on plants for the food we eat and the air we breathe, but the interconnections between plants and people actually go much deeper and are more nuanced. Scientists continue to discover the complexities of how plants take in and respond to information, even communicating with each other through underground networks and chemical signals. Human systems powerfully influence plant communities, locations, and health – and they also exert a powerful influence over us. Yet, despite the intricacies of the plant-human relationship, plants are often overlooked, even compared to other aspects of the natural world.

Our fall gallery show features artists who explore the relationships who explore the connections between plants and people – join us for an opening reception celebrating our newest exhibition.

Artists in this exhibition include:
Vaughn Bell
Rachel Eng
Ellie Irons
The Environmental Performance Agency (EPA)

The show opens in the gallery with a reception on Thursday, September 7th from 6-8 pm.
