Robert Bateman, "Carmanah Contrast." 1989, Acrylic on canvas.Environmental Impact II, produced by curator David J. Wagner, seeks to heighten public attention and concern about environmental degradation as well as the unintended consequences of human interaction with nature and neglect. Traditional art genres generally depict the natural world in y in beautiful, often pristine conditions. The 60 paintings, photographs, prints, installations, and sculptures in Environmental Impact II differ from traditional depictions of the environment and natural history because they deal with the critical, pressing environmental issues of our time. From global warming and its impact on the planet, to extreme weather cycles resulting in intense hurricanes, drought and wildfires, Environmental Impact II asks viewers to think about the actions they can take to sustain, support, and protect our globally connected world.
