AVIAN by Nature

Mixed media by Bon and Lee Roberts

Opening Reception: Tuesday, May 14, 6–8 p.m.

Meet the Artists: Saturday, May 18, 2–3 p.m.

In this exhibition, Bon Roberts and Lee Roberts explore the relationships between domestic and wild animals and their symbiotic and fundamental existences within contemporary lives and culture. Food sustainability, cohabitation of wild and domestic animals and humans, permaculture and reclamation of materials (waste to wonder) form the basic themes.

Mediums used include sculpture from reclaimed industrial and biological waste materials, relief works in burnt reclaimed flooring, industrial conveyor belting, plaster, photography and paintings in oil.

AVIAN by Nature will exhibit new works by Bon and Lee that are both individually and collaboratively created. Living creative lives together for 25 years and having fundamentally different styles and execution practices, Bon and Lee are innately influenced by their everyday shared experiences and art practices.
