Andy Moerlein’s exhibition "wood stone poem" considers ancient traditions of reverence for nature. While contemporary culture is confident of our dominance, the pandemic has laid bare the global impact of natural forces beyond our control. As we grapple with our persistent pursuit of comfort and relentless consumption, is it possible to be a gentle partner on this earth? Moerlein’s sculptures invite meditations on The Natural.

In her new series of wood sculptures, Dodson re-imagines Albrecht Durer’s “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” as Amazon warriors. She uses the traditional medium of woodcarving to suggest that these women have always been among us, but that gender misconceptions have prevented us from recognizing them. Drawing inspiration from legendary warrior women such as the Dahomey of West Africa and the Rani of Jhansi, Dodson’s amazons portray courage, strength and grit.
