Women Artists Launch Wilderness Conversation      


LOS   ANGELES, CA (April 18, 2015).  The Eco ­Art Collective of the Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art (SCWCA)  presents Wilderness Mind: Activating Wonder, a provocative multi‐generational exhibition that will open at Modest Fly Studio Art Gallery on May 2, 2015. Works by the sixteen participating artists assert that an open state of mind or what is often called “wonder” can be experienced in both traditional wilderness areas and in dense urban habitats. Some artwork celebrate the existing beauty and diversity of the planet while others acknowledge how human activity changes and often negatively impacts the environment. The diverse works range from assemblage, photography, hand-made books and paintings as well as a collaborative “Drought” installation by 12 artists that was recently featured at the Balance UnBalance International Conference at Arizona State University. Writings and resources that present the multiple concerns of the participating artists are also offered. Curator Marie Cenkner shared that the exhibition is part of an ongoing “Wilderness Mind” initiative by the collective that includes exhibitions, programs and public conversations to foster sustainable stewardship. A community conversation moderated by artist Suvan Geer with area activists will accompany the exhibition.
