VIRGINIA STEARNS: AWED BY NATURE ONCE AGAIN

In this exhibition eco-artist Virginia Stearns focuses on a few of the surprising multi-faceted wonders of the natural world. 

     Working with photographic images, hydrocal, acrylic paint and other mixed media, Stearns looks at symbiotic relationships among living animals including hermit crabs and their anemones and oxpecker birds and their salon services to African grazers.

In a slightly different vein, Stearns has created a large participatory piece called “Male or Female or…?” exploring the variety of sex and gender among humans through the lens of diverse animal sexual reproductive strategies.  Participants meet various amazing animals and humans through images on cards as they are invited to place them in a spectrum.
