Current exhibit through September 28. Museum is open Wednesday - Sunday, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm. Artist’s Statement: Most of our relationships with plants are during the day, during the magic of photosynthesis, a time when we can admire the visible beauty of nature lit up brightly by the sunlight. I walk around at night and gather plants and flowers with controlled lighting, illuminating the darkened garden that has receded since the sun has gone down. This process brings attention to the temporal light of the day, having much in common with the temporal existence of plants and flowers- their constantly changing shape and form calls attention to their short-lived life span.
