In My Own Back Yard - Mary Abma

January 6 - February 18, 2012

From January 6 to February 18, the Center Art Gallery at Calvin College presents In My Own Back Yard, an exhibition of work by Mary Abma. The exhibition includes three projects: Herbarium, Lumen Prints, and Triptych Altarpiece.

Mary Abma explores themes that allow her to incorporate her interest in history, her concern for the environment, her passion for science, and her desire to find visual expression for her thoughts about the human condition. This exhibition focuses the viewer's attention on the world beneath our feet.
