Katya Roberts: Traverse

OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2018 | 6-8 PM

FAMILY FRIENDLY ARTIST TALK SATURDAY, DECEMBER 8 | 10 AM – NOON

Traverse is an immersive, interactive exhibit that considers the spaces between us and nature. The artist invites the viewer to embark on a metaphorical journey of natural and human forces and the extent to which they are both at odds with each other and at times in harmony. If landscapes could speak, what would they say to us?  If they do speak, where can we hear them? With imagery inspired by Iceland’s geologically active landscapes, Iceland becomes the backdrop against which the artist proposes we evaluate our relationship to the landscapes we traverse.

With sound collaboration with Chris Kostelec.
