Beth Krensky & Wendy Wischer at Kimball Art Center

Wendy Wischer

Art Teaching Professor Beth Krensky and Sculpture Intermedia Associate Professor Wendy Wischer show recent work in a group show at Kimball Art Center.

Curated by Nancy Stoaks, Between Life and Land is a three-part exhibition series examining our relationship to land through the lens of more than 30 artists. Each exhibition in the series explores a singular theme to bring a deeper understanding of how this relationship has formed, evolved, and today continues to change.

In the face of our global climate crisis and tensions around the exploitation or pollution of our planet’s precious resources, the artists in the third chapter of Between Life and Land: Crisis are compelled to respond to pressing environmental issues. Twelve artists and artist collectives reflect on our rapidly shifting relationships to bodies of land and water, revealing stories of both trauma and healing. Here, artists find hope in participatory engagement, education, and mindfulness. During a critical moment in human history, their work facilitates public reflection and dialogue, demonstrating the vital role that art plays in mobilizing communities to transform our present and preserve our future.

Artists in the third chapter include Ackroyd & Harvey, Lani Asunción, Tiana Birrell, Lily Brooks, Desert ArtLAB, John Grade, Beth Krensky, Meditation Ocean Constellation, Postcommodity, Gabriela Salazar, and Wendy Wischer.

The exhibition is on view through October 29, 2023, at Kimball Art Center, 1251 Kearns Blvd, Park City, Utah 84060.
