"Turnip Green Creative Reuse will host a closing reception for "Reciprocity" in the Green Gallery on Saturday, May 16th, from 5:00pm-8:00pm.
Reciprocity is a collaborative art show featuring paintings and sculptures by Emily Sue Laird and Jake Wells. Both artists make work from reuse materials and items found in nature, such as leaves encased in paint and synthetic materials that mimic natural forms, creating objects that extend nature beyond its normal decomposition cycle.
The natural world is a source of inspiration and materials for both of these artists, prompting them to make work that questions our relationship to nature and how we may choose to use it. Wells and Laird share a need not only to celebrate and share the beauty of the natural world, but also to promote its preservation for present and future generations
Per usual, you'll find good company, yummy beverages, and lots of cheer to accompany the great art."
