Monthly Meeting: Mary Mattingly & Andrea Grover in Conversation

We will be joined by Mary Mattingly, the artist behind SWALE, and Andrea Grover, curator of the Radical Seafaring exhibit at the Parrish Museum. After a short introduction to their work we will have a chance to discuss how we live in relation to a natural world from which we are detached not only physically but emotionally and intellectually. The artists in the show apply direct engagement strategies that remove this distance and reconsider the notion of the artist's studio as separate from the world.
