“Wilderness Mind: Dissolving Duality” launched the banner year focus on wilderness with three month run at Angels Gate Cultural Center in San Pedro.


Curated by Deborah Thomas, the exhibition represents work that ranges from photography to non-representational painting, performance, and installation; it spans a continuum of references to water from suburban irrigation systems to the arctic ice cap; to wildlife, including Barr owls, sea otters, and golden trout from the Sierras; and to locations from San Pedro Harbor to Mozambique.
