Urban Landscapes

December 5, 2012 - February 15, 2013

This exhibition evokes the contemporary relationship between the urban and the natural, where constellations compete with city lights and cement cloverleafs are more common than wildflowers.

In this exhibit, the natural and the urban uniquely intertwine, evoking livable landscapes and startling juxtapositions, such as Tricia Zimic’s black bears feasting under a highway superstructure.  Trompe-l’oeil artist, Louis Russomanno, brings Trenton old and new to life, in “The Mud Men.” Past, present, and future emerge in cityscapes small and large.

Exhibiting artists:
Susan Marie Brundage, Jean Childs Buzgo, Chris Kline, Thom Lynch, Leon Rainbow, Linnea W. Rhodes, Louis Russomanno and Tricia Zimic, along with select works by the TASK (Trenton Area Soup Kitchen) A-Team artists.
