Art on the wild side
It’s been said that art is all in the details… and that’s precisely what “A Closer Look” aims to explore. The often-overlooked world of particulars, specifics and minutia is unmistakably found within Todd McGrain’s Lost Bird Project, Bree Deverill’s wall art and Eirini Pajak’s macro-photography.
The “little” things matter. We hope the artwork you see here in the Savanna Gallery inspires you to reconnect with the insatiable beauty in the details.
Most of the photographs featured in this exhibit are available for purchase!
