Meet the Artists from the Nature Revisited Exhibition

Nature Revisited Art Exhibition

On view until Jan. 2, 2020

Takoma Park Community Center

7500 Maple Avenue

If you haven’t seen the Nature Revisited exhibition at the Takoma Park Community Center, you only have a few weeks left! The exhibition will be on view until Jan. 2, and you can see the art and hear the artists talk about their work in this Youtube video.  Three photographers and a mixed-media artist offer surprising views of landscapes from across the world, casting nature through a different light. The artists include Rachel Ann Cross, Michael Duncan, Stewart Sarkozy-Banoczy, and Peter Stern.

In her Sacred Treks series, Cross has painted elements from her epic hikes, including more than 500 miles along the centuries-old Camino de Santiago in France and Spain. A retired optical scientist, Michael Duncan has developed astrophotography with long-exposure night photos that bring constellations and galaxies to life in the Southwest.

Sarkozy-Banoczy documents communities and habitats across the world that are severely affected by climate change, including dwindling fishing villages in Newfoundland. As an ultralight plane pilot, Stern takes takes low-altitude landscape photos that resemble abstract paintings, including images of environmental devastation in Pennsylvania mine country.
