Rooted is an exhibition of cyanotypes by Jody Boyer and etchings by Keith D Buswell. These works will be on view in the Hanson and Stanton galleries from September 14 through October 9.
Rooted takes you on a journey through the microscopic view of the landscape to the collective nature of trees. Boyer’s work encourages an intimate view of the atmosphere, landscape, and place. While Buswell encourages us to think of community and connection through the trees and the ecology that helps them thrive.
Rooted was made possible through the generous support of Clear Lake Bank & Trust and the Hanson Family Foundation.
