May 2 – June 25, 2018
Artist Reception: May 18, 2018 5:30-7:30

Impermanent Lands is a dual exhibit of artists Nicole Gordon & Jennifer Presant.  Their large scale paintings take a surreal, dream-like look at the tension between the artificial and real and inside and outside, forcing the viewer to confront the world we live in.


The Art of Human Interaction with the Environment

Jurors: eco-activist Wendy Abrams and eco-artists Nicole Gordon & Jennifer Presant

The Art Center HIghland Park (TAC) will exhibit 2 concurrent shows, focusing on how human interaction affects the environment.  The goal is to create awareness, build dialogue, and help to change specific behaviors that may negatively hurt our natural systems. The work  may include an element of recycling, reusing, and reclaiming; shedding light on the environmental problems we face in today’s world, with an emphasis on bringing about change in attitudes and awareness.
