Where: The New Bohemian Gallery 

Reception: Friday, June 10, 2016 

Time: 5:00-8:00pm

This exhibition focuses on the societies that we live in and the structural surroundings that take shape around us. We live in a time where our landscapes are always changing, and many of our natural settings are evolving into urban populated environments. The artists selected for this exhibition, have created artwork that features imagery of cities, towns, metropolitan areas, urban settings, and other cultural aspects within these places. Whether it be the very different photography work of Jessica Bingham or Sean Andrew Pyle, one altering the natural environment with contemporary sculptural forms and photographing them, and the other capturing black and white images of everyday city life, or the mixed media paintings by Alessandra Sulpy, that are filled with rich color, texture, and backstories of decay and abandonment of city storefronts, each of the pieces on display show the diversity in the urban landscapes presented by artists from all over the country. Urban Landscapes blends together the aspects of human foundation, nature, and various architectural design elements throughout time, into one collective exhibition. Artwork created in the mediums of acrylic and oil paintings, mixed media, intaglio and relief prints, and photography will be on display.
