Plant Patterns Exhibit at the Central Park Arsenal
Ending September 1, 2017
Yours truly had the pleasure of seeing the Plant Patterns Exhibit at the Central Park Arsenal today. Admittedly I’ve arrived at the very tail end of the showing since September 1, 2017 will be the last day of its display. My apologies to the artists whose work hung off the walls on the third floor of 830 Fifth Avenue. I’ll be sure to stay abreast of future exhibits there; if the one I witnessed today is any sign of what’s in store then I look forward to revisiting.
The following would be an excerpt from the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation website detailing the exhibit and who the participating artists are:
“Plant Patterns features the work of Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao, Adrienne Elise Tarver, Karin Haas, Liesl Pfeffer, and Nick Wildermuth. The artists use plants’ impressive natural characteristics as a means to explore various themes in their graphic works. Domestic and wild flora have provided artists with inspiration for centuries. The diversity and multitude of plant colors, shapes, and repetitive forms, which evolved to lure pollinators, caution predators, and promote regeneration, are naturally appealing to artists’ sensibilities.”
