From the August 21, 2014 edition

The August exhibit offers two distinct and striking takes on an unconventional approach to the landscape.

Laurie Ihlenfield creates expansive landscape installations using crochet, embroidery and paint that break the mold and convey the splendid power of nature.

Aaron Troyer’s take on landscape paintings (using watercolor, gouache and ink washes) is done through a stream-of-consciousness approach that beguiles by creating an abstract setting the viewer will get lost in.
