(not) Strictly Painting 14 at McLean Project for the Arts (Sep 14-Nov 11, 2023)

This exhibit brings together artists who make work that is at once aesthetically pleasing and philosophically compelling. Visual attractiveness and the expression of deep and sometimes disturbing or unsettling ideas live together, as each artist feels an urgency to address fundamental and dire environmental concerns. Beauty, created through skillful and inventive use of materials, becomes the doorway through which the viewer enters into a sincere and pressing dialogue about the natural world and our responsibility to care for it.
