Girl in the Garden: Danger in Paradise is a solo exhibition of new work by Amie Potsic addressing climate change through the complex viewpoints of girlhood, deforestation, and Magical Realism.  With site-specific installations, photographs, and mixed media works, Potsic collaborates with Hot Bed, a unique fine art and horticulture gallery, to produce an incarnate exploration of female identity, the forested lifeblood of our planet, and the fate of humankind.

After photographing her daughter in the lush forests of the northeastern United States, the artist traveled to Paradise, California and surrounding forests (located in the desert upwind from her extended family’s home) to photograph the complete devastation caused by the deadliest wildfire in the state’s history. Personal experience underscoring the urgency climate change, Potsic intertwines visions of girlhood in a magical environment with nature’s unprecedented destruction caused by wildfires.

Harnessing the power of imagination, Potsic’s work is a call to action. Visitors will find shared resources for taking environmental action in their own lives, distinguishing this show from many fine art exhibitions on climate. From the artist’s perspective, the time for concern has given way to a time for swift and meaningful action.

Enamored Armor, featuring Mari Ogihara, and Tiantian Li, and Marjan Moghaddam, approaches the female figure as one of power with references inspired by art history, cultural specificity, and contemporary society. The classical figure as a basis, these artists investigate the multiplicity of ways that women choose to present and redefine themselves in pursuit of potency and self-discovery. Through photography, painting, sculpture, and augmented reality, their work spans an historical spectrum of millennia with a finger on the pulse of contemporary artistic practice, the women’s empowerment movement, and emerging technologies.

Admission is free.

Color in the Moment features Zelda Edelson, a prolific abstract painter who has created her own technique to enable her to paint from a walker used for balance. Creating something positive from challenging circumstances, her paintings are colorful and evocative. Edelson begins each painting with a gesture of the arm to create the first mark with her palette knife. The paint begins to flow and Edelson becomes invigorated, losing herself in the process. She paints the areas of the canvas she can reach first. Then turning the painting, she accesses the previously unreachable portions to complete it. When each painting is finished, Edelson enjoys the process of bringing her diverse background to bear as she writes insightful titles for each work. Sharing her love of painting through gesture, color, and form, Edelson’s work reveals a voice that is both seasoned and spontaneous.
