End of Nature Art Show at Warehouse

Originally uploaded by In Shaw

Friday went to see the art work of friends and neighbors at the Warehouse Theater on 7th. The theme was to have artists think about “THE END OF NATURE”. I kind of like Artist Ira Tattleman’s view of it that there is no end of nature, nature fights through the sidewalks. In his piece, which I think (I didn’t take notes) was titled “The band played on” incorporated I.V. tubes and other medical items to denote illness in either our world or nature (once again, if I had notes…).
Tom Drymon took up one whole room for his “We All Fall Down”. I can’t remember the text of how the installation related to the theme, but I do know he was a N.O. Katrina victim and one of the photos in the piece was damaged by the storm waters.
Anyway, the pictures I took of Tom’s & Ira’s pieces are in the Flickr tag group EndofNatureArtShow. Shown here are two pieces I really liked and would consider buying, as they were actually in my price range.
