"Eukaryotic Appartion," Lew Fifield

Current Exhibit

Natural Pairings
Christine Neill & Lew Fifield
December 2-January 30
Reception: Saturday, December 6, 3-5 p.m.

Baltimore artists Christine Neill and Lew Fifield, a married couple who both teach at Maryland Institute College of Art, join forces to present Natural Pairings. Neill is well known for her lush mixed-media paintings and prints exploring the intricacies and ephemerality of the natural world, while Fifield uses digital photography and multi-dimensional paper layers to capture the patterns of nature in richly nuanced images that evoke memory and faraway landscapes. This show offers a unique opportunity to see how two artists working in close proximity influence one another as they interpret the natural world.
