Bonsack Gallery: Friday, 12 February 2016

Aquilegia/Columbine: Clouded By,” relief monoprint, diptych 15 x 23 inches, 2015
John Burroughs wrote, “I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.” The Bonsack Gallery at the school named for the poet/naturalist will feature “Planting(s),” an exhibit of nature prints by Sharron Pollack, from February 12 through April 6. All are invited to an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, Friday, February 12.

“Planting(s)” speaks to Pollack’s profound interest in and connection to plants – their texture, structure and growth patterns. Rooted in intense observation and unique visualization, her recent work presents flowers, leaves and seedpods in evocative ways that transcend the familiar.

Pollack uses intaglio, relief and digital printing processes alongside the tradition of 19th-century nature printing to create metaphors about people, communities and situations. She uses plants as cultural signifiers of happiness as well as lamentations for the fallen.

Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays.
