Ecophilia brings together thirty artists from throughout the country whose work is inspired by nature, showcasing a variety of techniques and mediums including oil, acrylic, graphite, charcoal, gouache, and photography. Some artists are plein air painters, creating their work directly on site; others wander the woods or their neighborhoods studying and photographing nature, or bring bits of nature back into their studios for further contemplation. The exhibition, curated by Sue Muskat and Phil Knoll, includes some of the brightest talents working in the field of nature.
The exhibition is on display in the Center House Leonhardt Galleries and features the following artists: Stephanie Anderson, Michael Angelis, Leslie Carmin, Mary Chatham, Kirsten Deirup, Sarah Tepler Drobnitch, Alyssa Fanning, Margot Glass, Mike Glier, Elliott Green, Elizabeth Hazan, Jen Hitchings, Colin Hunt, Butt Johnson, Irena Jurek, Maggie Mailer, Sabrina Marques, Andy Mister, Jon Piasecki, Lucas Reiner, Janet Rickus, Jessica Rohrer, Katy Schneider, Tim Sharman, Amy Talluto, Joy Taylor, Austin Thomas, Tara Tucker, Nichole van Beek, and Aicha Woods.
