"Paradise Lost" Artist Reception Tonight!
Paradise Lost is currently on view at Art Lab Fort Collins! Please join us tonight at 6 pm for the artist reception!
Paradise Lost explores the nexus of recreation and stewardship. Featuring a breadth of mediums including paintings, wall hangings, installation, and embroidery, the exhibition invites viewers to analyze their relationships with nature. Paintings span from untouched landscapes to those seen through screens and windshields. Merit and demerit badges reframe and modernize the traditional “Leave No Trace” ideals. Wall hangings with topographical imagery map the human impact on the natural world. Installation work creates a space for viewers to examine the dichotomies between the human desire to preserve the wilderness and to enjoy it.
