Gaining a Post Pandemic Awareness
NOVEMBER 3RD, 2021 - JANUARY 3RD, 2022
Human nature dictates once we are told to stay inside, our mind wanders to the outside and to some bucket list activities. Always meant to; go pick blue berries, plant a vegetable garden, walk a couple of miles every day, cook two gourmet meals a week, teach the children to roller skate, learn another language and the list goes on. Now that we are reaching Post Pandemic life, do you still have your list, turn your visions, actions into images for this exhibition reflecting hope in these trying times.

The Nature of Things
Presentation by Crystal Floyd
As a visual artist and aspiring naturalist native to Northeast Florida, Crystal Floyd’s work explores themes of nature, storytelling, and adaptive reuse, transforming collected ephemera and manipulated materials into naturalistic vignettes. Drawing inspiration from the environment and science, she uses preserved insects, plants, taxonomic items, natural artifacts, miniatures and found objects to activate magical narratives. Her practice focuses on encouraging observation and participation in the natural world and closer examination of the individual role and responsibilities we all have to our environment.
