"Wake" curated by Michele L'Heureux opens May 6 at Dorsky Gallery
"Stilt" 2014, felt, wood, paper, 8'H x 5'W x 2'D

Wake examines the power of water to sustain life and to destroy it and also looks at what is left in its wake. The paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installations in this exhibition explore the sheer force of water in the form of waves, storms, and energy, as well as the aftermath of water once it retreats: parched earth, invasive plants, dwindling animal populations, human illness. The visual dialogue between these six artists invites reflection and discussion on the impact of global climate change
