Opening on Saturday, April 12th, 5-9pm

Seeing Green encourages artists to leave the confines of the studio and take an active role with the community, to collaborate and address issues of the environment, and to open a dialog with the public. 

Guest curator Nicolas Lampert invited 45 local artists to work on a project for the duration of eight months. During the month of April, the show will be exhibited at Woodland Pattern Book Center where the gallery will serve as a hub space, informing the viewer and the public of the many environmental projects taking place throughout the city, exhibiting visual work and books, screening films and holding discussions and events based around the exhibition.
