Earth Muse: Art and the Environment

Earth Muse: Art and the Environment

The Heckscher Museum of Art in Huntington, NY is celebrating nature with two spring exhibitions focused on art and the environment: Earth Muse: Art and the Environment and Thaddeus Holownia: Walden Revisited. On view April 15 to July 30, 2017.

Peter Beard’s work will be featured in the exhibit Earth Muse: Art and the Environment, presenting the work of varied artists who are inspired by Earth’s beauty and diversity. Aerial photos of Long Island waters by Alex Ferrone, photograms of ocean waves by Melissa Fleming, and topographical constructions of the Adirondacks by Winn Rea encourage an alternate view of familiar landscapes. The exhibit also considers man’s impact on the environment, as seen in the work of Michelle Stuart, Peter Beard, Brandon Ballengée, and Barbara Roux.

Inspired by nature’s grandeur and Henry David Thoreau’s essays, Canadian photographer Thaddeus Holownia visited Walden Woods over a period of two years, two months and two days. The result is Thaddeus Holownia: Walden Revisited, a full-gallery, large-scale installation of his series 24 Tree Studies for Henry David Thoreau. The exhibit creates a stunning and imposing portrait of the forest at Walden Pond.
