Whitney Lewis-Smith – The Overview
April 18th - May 12th, 2024
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 18th, 5-7pm and Saturday April 20th, 12-3pm
This exhibition’s theme focuses on ideas surrounding the Overview Effect and first hand accounts described by astronauts seeing our fragile earth from space. Experiencing with one’s own eyes that this celestial body is a single ecosystem profoundly impacts one’s sense of care and connectedness to the planet. Our physical location cannot help but inform our scope of the universe. Leaving earth to explore beyond writes a new chapter in our evolutionary tale that may also become part of our origin story. Traversing the heavens, a place previously reserved for imagination and the afterlife, is impacting humanity in ways we are still trying to grasp, especially now as we cruise further and further from home.
