A discussion about the intersection of art and the environment with artist Michele Oka Doner, sculptor Robert Chambers, curator Rene Morales and Dr. Hilary Swain, moderated by Deborah Mitchell.
Deborah Mitchell’s beautiful Everglades Field Guide is a journey into both primal landscape and the human psyche. She wanders deep into the physical space and finds worlds within the brackish water and mangrove roots. This penetration is vividly expressed with both pen and brush. Add the use of collage and camera and the guide is a recipe for enjoying countless hours in one of the America’s great wonders. There is no other Everglades, and Deborah Mitchell is also a unique. Even more amazing, the Everglades Field Guide is even an interesting read a thousand miles away. Words and images create a transcendent experience.
