In Helen Wilson’s Botanical Voices, mixed media come together in highly textured collage landscapes inspired by local flora. Wilson is influenced by the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which is near her current home. She also references the avocado trees in her grandmother’s Southern California garden. This exhibition gives a voice to the botanical world as the artist believes that plants and trees have much to teach us.

The works in the exhibition rely on the process of multiplying techniques using searching, researching, analyzing, finding, fragmenting, combining, discovering, and synthesizing. Hoot’s experimental compositions take place on a variety of materials, including paper and canvas.

Emerging artists from Kent, Ohio participate in Included But Not Limited To, which celebrates the diversity of ceramics and plays with expectations of craft within the fine arts. Functional and decorative works challenge the limitations of surface and form in traditional and contemporary ways. Practices including painting, weaving, embroidery, woodworking, metal fabrication, and technology in conjunction with ceramics complicate the language of craft in fine arts through functional objects, sculpture, and installation.
