A Call to Action: “Environ” at Las Manos Gallery
By Susan Thomas
Michelle Peterson-Albandoz is a curator who likes to make you think…on many levels. Las Manos Gallery’s latest group show “Environ” is no exception: Fourteen artists contribute their vision of man’s damage to land in the pursuit progress and consumption, now through September at this Andersonville space.
The environmental activist theme is a constant with Peterson-Albandoz, also an artist known for her reclaimed/recycled wood compositions. “There’s so much consumption and waste out there—it just makes sense as an artist to recycle materials into something responsible and beautiful,” says Albandoz.
