The Green Mantle: Botanical Portraits and Histories

Kibbee Gallery's upcoming exhibition, "The Green Mantle" takes its name from the title of chapter six, "Earth's Green Mantle", in Rachel Carson's most famous work, Silent Spring. Like the chapter in the book, The Green Mantle is a metaphor for the vegetation covering the Earth's crust, and its life sustaining properties. Without green plants, the biodeversity and health of our eco system would die, has died or is at risk. For centuries, herbalists and botanical illustrators have carefully documented and recorded the diverse green matter on earth. This exhibiton pays homage to those traditions and sheds light onto personal histories of nature and our coexistence with plants.
Featuring works by Kagan Andrew, Lisa Alembik, Avery Beason, Ree Blankenship, Blanca Chen, Kelly Cloninger, Greg Crimmins, Steven Dixey, Susan Cipcic, Kylie Mays, Yu-han Peng, Hannah Shepard, Scott Sivley, Alex Solomon, Joe Tsambiras, Amber Westmoreland, and Pandra Williams.
