The man-made modern world often juxtaposes forms and shapes found in nature. Now that crossover will be on display as artist Mike Adams brings his Gothic Forest installation to South Puget Sound Community College beginning Feb. 25.
Gothic Forest incorporates video projections on suspended sewn-mesh forms, creative imagery evocative of natural forests and gothic architecture. Inspired by the gothic cathedrals of Chester and York in Northern England, as well as the forests of the Pacific Northwest, Adams creates an environment to contemplate the connection between man and nature.
The exhibition runs from Tuesday, Feb. 25 through Friday, March 28 at The Gallery at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts. Adams will host a special lecture at The Gallery at 11 a.m. on Feb. 25, and a special opening reception will also take place on opening night at 6 p.m. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from noon to 4 p.m., except holidays.
