John Ryan is a sculptor and a puppeteer who carves animals out of wood who are at risk of endangerment. Natalie Tyler’s glass sculptures raise nature to a state of preciousness. The artwork is evocative of the beauty inherent in our natural world. The exhibition will be up through the end of August 2017.
“Scientists tell us that most animals present today—including humans—will not survive our massive presence on earth without our immediate intervention. They also predict a ripple effect on human health and society. Artists deepen our understanding of this interdependency, and help us explore how we feel about animals and our relationships with them. Together, art and science reach a wider audience with a more inclusive message.” -Dr. Lucy Spelman
