View, the Center of Arts and Culture in Old Forge, has announced the award winners of Textures and Layers: A Walk in the Woods.
A Walk in the Woods exhibit is a multi-sensory experience stimulated by the varied textures and layers found in the woodland environment. From micro to macro scale we are bombarded by what we can see, hear, smell, and touch. Artists’ impressions of the many textures and layers in the woods – ranging from realistic to abstractions – can evoke these sensory experiences. The exhibition will be on display through March 28th, 2020.
The first-place winner of Textures and Layers was Tiina Bockrath, with The Larch Wood in Winter. Dan Lloyd took home second place with Soundless, and April Morning by Regina Quinn took home third place. Honorable mentions were Spruce-Systems: Static Flow of Info-Nutrients by Fanni Somogyi and Margaret Brenner’s Change.
