Natural Heritage Project – Artist Reception
Solo Exhibition by Sarah Albinson - Natural Heritage Project
November 10, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Artist Sarah Nelson, saw the Natural Heritage Working List and as a result has worked to capture the emotions of coming to know the beauty of something while simultaneously watching it disappear. It is both a collection to document these species existence, celebrating their beauty and elegance, and also to demonstrate the vital interdependence between various species, as well as the creatures and their habitats. All works have emulated the illustration style of artists who, throughout history, have accompanied explorers and scientists documenting new species. Although the style harkens back to historical documents, each of Sarah’s works was created with a personal perspective generating some pieces that are six feet tall, others that deteriorate or disappear, and all have been made with a relatively new medium: pen and marker on paper. Inopia is an invitation to better know the rare, the elegant, and rich world of this region’s natural heritage.
