"POLLAN-ators"

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Palette Gallery presents "POLLAN-ators" - a group exhibition inspired by Michael Pollan's 2001 nonfiction book "The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World". This show explores the concept of cultivation and the unique coevolutionary dance between flora and human.

From Dionysus to Johnny Appleseed, or even your backyard garden, the human desire to put down roots and shape the earth is strong - physically and metaphorically. Plants possess almost magical powers, ensnaring us by our desires for beauty, sweetness, intoxication, and control. Thus, they ensure their own survival as sources of both practical and aesthetic nourishment. "POLLAN-ators" is a reminder of the reciprocity of this relationship; by providing a window into the plants' perspective, the artists demonstrate how intimate and fruitful this relationship could be.

Featuring works by: Bedelgeuse, Nora Bruhn, Tom Colcord, Velia de Iuliis, and Linda Larson.
