Art Exhibition – Slice: Sculpture by David Purcell and Aerial Photography by Peter Stern

Thursday, August 28, 2014 - Friday, October 17, 2014
9:00 am - 7:00 pm

What is your favorite way to experience the natural world? For many of us, the encounter is direct and tactile: turning the earth, navigating a forest trail, scaling rocks or wiggling our toes in the sand. For some artists, the engagement is conceptual as well as physical – incorporating an appreciation of organization within nature, as well as its rich textures, colors, and sensations. Two artists featured in a new exhibition at the Greenbelt Community Center Art Gallery share impressions of their own unique explorations of the environment and its formal beauty. David Purcell creates elegant sculptures of rock formations and insect hives out of carefully cut and stacked layers of corrugated cardboard. Peter Stern creates aerial photography, shooting from his ultralight plane; the photos now on view explore the winding waterways and the golden landscape tapestry of Maryland’s eastern shore in autumn.
