Opening Reception: Northward, Knowing Land, and Shaping Nature Exhibitions
Celebrate three CAM summer exhibitions that depict imagery or use materials from the Niagara landscape and showcase the intimate relationship between art and nature.
Northward: Niagara River Views: featuring historical views of the northward flowing Niagara River and the settlements on its bank through incredible paintings and prints
Knowing Land: a mixed media exhibition that explores the relationship between people and the environment, specifically how Haudenosaunee cultural knowledge of the Niagara Falls and Lower Niagara River is preserved and expressed
Shaping Nature: a Niagara University student-curated exhibition that explores the relationship between function, nature, and artistry in the work of Buffalo-based potter, Junko McGee
