May 13, 2021 - Jun 26, 2021
On view from May 13 – June 26, 2021 at the Colorado Photographic Arts Center is Changing Landscape - a collection of photographs from bodies of work by Adriene Hughes, Stephan Jahanshahi, and Brad Temkin.
Each artist, in their own way, surveys the natural landscape and opens our view to the adaptations of a place. What may be a complex scientific finding of climate change becomes a vivid, visual narrative that evokes emotion and reflection. Adriene captures a forest fire in Washington State with an infrared camera, using embroidery on the physical image to highlight lines of communication between the trees. Stephan travels to Svalbard, Norway during the warmest years on record to depict how the weather transforms the fragile balance of the environment. Brad reveals living and elevated landscapes of green roofs in bustling cities to show the growth being made in reducing our environmental impact with urban structures. Presented with these documentations, we can begin to expand our imagining of the future and open our minds to new scenarios of change. With Earth Day on April 22nd, this exhibit offers the opportunity to reflect on the role art can play in the movement to protect our environment at such a pivotal time.
Opening Reception with timed entry will take place on Saturday, May 15th. Registration required through CPAC’s website.
And on Wednesday, May 19th, a virtual Zoom discussion with the artists will take place. Separate registration for this special programming is required through CPAC’s website.
