Join us for an Evening Reception and Earth Week Artist Talk with featured photographer and artist, Robert Dash.

Grab a drink, mingle with friends, and listen to artist Robert Dash discuss his 36 spectacular large-scale photographs on view in our Bendel Mansion galleries.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT Micro Views of Sustenance: Threats & Prospects offers a micro perspective on how one part of nature—our food—is connected to climate change. Using photomontage to create a surreal conversation between everyday foods and microscopic parts of themselves, this work ponders threats to our staple foods from: crop loss due to droughts, floods, soil loss, pests, deforestation; loss of crop nutrient value, and stresses on developing nations; the wasting of 30% of the food we produce; the shifting ranges of many crops; the shift of seasons and implications for syncing with pollinators; and the crash of insect (bee and other) populations.
