JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – The Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History is exploring the theme of interconnectivity with their newest annual juried exhibition ‘Art That Matters To The Planet’, which features works by 25 artists across the country.
The artists were asked to submit work related to ‘Roots’, this theme served as an analogy for relationships between humans and their communities.
The art ranges from paintings, to sculptures made from materials found in nature such as feathers, rocks, and even animal bones.
One of these artists being featured is Joseph Grice, an artist who spent a week in Jamestown studying the works of Roger Tory Peterson. Grice, inspired by the art of Peterson, created his ‘Taking Flight’ collection.
The ‘Art That Matters To The Planet’ and ‘Taking Flight’ will be on display through October 8th at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute.
