For a limited time only, D&R Greenway Land Trust is presenting a special exhibition by award-winning environmental artist Cameron (Cami) Davis. This is a special exhibit traveling from Vermont to be viewed here in anticipation of the Emergent Universe Oratorio that will be performed in Villanova on July 28
The artwork, on large canvases that draw the viewer into the space, “celebrates our human relationship within a whole, living and evolving Earth and Cosmos,” says the artist. Her paintings, installations and community art projects “explore the natural world at the edges where inner and outer perceptions meet.” Her semi-abstract work explores the boundaries between observable phenomena and intuitive musings and improvisations.
Using layers of paint and other media, Davis creates engaging visual imagery as a wake-up call to environmental disaster. A series titled “Endless Spring” is based on a Buddhist term for enlightenment. Davis asks, “Will we truly continue to experience the renewal of spring if we do not address climate change, if we do not address the evolution of consciousness?”
“Endless Spring” is part of a collaboration with composer Sam Guarnaccia’s “Emergent Universe Oratorio.” The Oratorio’s 100 voiced choir and chamber orchestra libretto and spoken recitatives address the relevancy of the “journey of the universe” to these times.
Guarnaccia will join Davis June 21 for a lecture at the opening reception. A month later, on Saturday, July 28, 5:30-11:30 p.m., visitors can join D&R Greenway for a bus trip to Villanova Chapel to experience the Emergent Universe Oratorio, presented for the first time in the Mid-Atlantic region.
Cosmophilia will be on view June 21-July 25 in D&R Greenway’s Johnson Education Center, 1 Preservation Place, Princeton. Reception and Lecture: Thursday, June 21, 5:30 – 7 p.m. Free admission. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
