Gallery Project presents Landscape and Memory, an exhibition examining how the memory of the land itself shapes us. The exhibit opens at noon on Wednesday, September 23, and runs until 4pm on Sunday, November 1st. The reception is on Friday, September 25th, from 6-9pm.

Landscape and Memory seeks the experience and sensation of landscape, tracing memory beyond symbol and image, to find a place in-between land and mind that is grounded in shared human experience, evolution, geology, and memory.

Skyscrapers, landfill mounds, and industrialized agriculture often lead society to collectively assume that, via human engineering and construction, it is we who shape the landscape to ourselves. In contrast to this line of thought, Landscape and Memory presents the self as shaped by environment and landscape.

Artists include Shane Anderson, Katherine E. Bash, Jennilie Brewster, Rocco DePietro, Sarah Kanouse, Catherine Meier, Zac Montanaro, Bruce Myren, Anne Percoco, Marianetta Porter, Gloria Pritschet, Terri Sarris, Matthew Shlian, Joshua Ray Smith, and Mary Tsiongas The exhibit is curated by Catherine Meier and Joshua Smith.
