Curator Dana Self organized this exhibition which addressed our paradoxical relationship to nature; specifically, the garden. The artists examined nature and the "garden of earthly delights" in which we find ourselves. Flowers, wood logs, leaves, strange yet beautiful abstract forms, and other garden elements are revealed as these artists travel very personal paths to reconcile culture with nature, the future with the past, and the earthly with the ethereal. Artists included Antonio Girbes, Alison Moritsugu, Eleanor Miller, Andrew Young, Janet Pihlblad, Darren Waterston, Maura Bendett, Anne Siems, David Kroll, and Maria Tomasula.
