Beauty in the Time of Climate Change

Winter's Wait 400

Photographs by Doug Smith, Jim Chamberlain, Vincent Leandro and friends. Quote from “Shifting Patterns” published in 2008: “Beyond the classic ingredients that form the world – earth, air, fire, and water – we must acknowledge another: people. Like it or not, humanity is an essential component of all the living systems on the planet, and how we behave will determine the future not just of ourselves, but of every living thing. There is no escaping the consequences of human activity. Like all animals, human beings are, most fundamentally, consumers. We seek abundance, safety, and ease, and have been remarkably successful at getting them. Unfortunately, at the base of it all is the flawed assumption that our consumption of the world’s good things can increase forever. Sooner or later, that assumption was bound to catch up with us. Thanks to climate change, it looks like it’s going to be sooner. . Humans are consumers, yes, but we are also capable of astounding generosity, imagination, creativity, and compassion. This is the time to begin.”

The Schneider Museum of Art’s current exhibition, Breaking Pattern, highlights several generations of artists from coast to coast whose works investigate and advance the discourse around pattern, optical, and perceptual abstract painting. The exhibition features recent paintings by seven American artists: Gabriele Evertz, Anoka Faruqee, Michelle Grabner, Gilbert Hsiao, Douglas Melini, Brian Porray, and Michael Scott. Breaking Pattern coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Museum of Modern Art’s seminal exhibition, The Responsive Eye, curated by William C. Seitz. The curators of Breaking Pattern are respective artists themselves. The Museum presents in its Treehaven Gallery With You in Constant Conversation, an exhibition featuring two works: Sweet Like Candy to My Soul by Rossana Martinez and Zero-Sum by Matthew Deleget.
