Sentiments and Origins features the flora and fauna of contemporary artists Frances de la Rosa, Cynthia Farnell, Juan Alberto Negroni and Pandra Williams curated by Shannon Morris. Collectively, these artists create ceramic sculptures, paintings and photographic images of flowers and plants. Their works explore the roles that plants play as crucial components within our environment.  As living things, often passed down through generations, their presence may recall particular associations to places, cultures and communities.

Join us for an artist talk on March 2 at 4 p.m. followed by an evening reception from 5-8 p.m.
