Silverwood hosts a group exhibition juried by Tessa Beck

Drift, a juried show as selected by Tessa Beck, is on view October 12 - December 17, 2023. The opening reception is Thursday, October 12 from 6 - 8 pm.

Monumental sand dunes, boats on the water, smoke from wildfires, displacement due to environmental crisis… We observe constant states of drift, some exacerbated by human activity. The word drift refers to movement driven by an outside force. What does it mean to be moved or carried without guidance or control? When we drift, we are reminded of our ability to adapt, change, and intervene. Engaging with environmental challenges provides an opportunity to refresh our perspective and curiosity and set our course. The following artists were selected by juror Tessa Beck to exhibit work that explores drift as it relates to the natural world.

Cesar Ceballos, Vincent DeZutti, Ariana Engle, Kristina Estell, Milez Estelle, Kiera Faber, Jean H. Howard, Ken Johnson, Emily Lehman, Thomas Moberg, Stephanie L. Paine, Gwen Partin, John Pearson, Shen Pei, Bonnie Ploger, Alan Paine Radebaugh, Marisa Rapezzi, Jes Reyes, Josh Sands, Susan Solomon, Erika Terwilliger, Jose Trejo-Maya, Amy Usdin, Megan Vossler, Katelin Walczyk, Barbara Wallace, Forrest Wasko, Jennifer Weigel, Kimberly Wetzel

The Silverwood Park Gallery is free to the public and open daily from 9 am - 5 pm. Call 763-694-2091 or email eileen.cohen@threeriversparks.org for more information.
