Light Upon and Within: Nature and Figures

Image of exhibit

Jonathan Taylor, Lea Delson, and Julie Cohn  present paintings and photographs examining how light is perceived through nature and figures. 

Compositions rendered by way of translucency and luminosity expose the images into being. 

As these artist relate the connection between people and their environment through light and color, they hope to inspire within the viewer a feeling of closeness and caring for one another and a respect and reverence for nature.
