Landscapes and the Unbuilt is a new exhibition that reflects artist interactions with land and natural places. This two-part exhibition pairs nine Rochester-based artists with nine Genesee Land Trust conserved properties; and presents two new sculptural installations related to human impact on the land.

Ranging from painters to sculptors to photographers, the Rochester-based artists have each selected one Genesee Land Trust project to engage with the land, the history, living creatures, and perhaps even the built alternative. We all need natural unbuilt spaces and through the eyes of these varied artists, we can understand how natural places inspire creativity. The resulting projects present each artists’ response to the site and highlight the many ways in which artists are inspired by the landscape, the environment and the zones between natural land and built landscapes. Each work will be exhibited alongside a map and more information about each location.

Contrasting with the Rochester-based artists’ Unbuilt projects, two sculptural installations grow out of emerging artists’ interest in ecology and human impact on the natural environment. Colin Lyons’s (Binghamton, NY) installations blend printmaking and sculpture to investigate landscapes and environments that have been dramatically impacted by industry. Rachel Eng’s (Carlisle, PA) clay ecosystem micro environments represent botanical samples and even contain cycles of condensation and decay, but are completely handmade by the artist.

Landscapes and the Unbuilt features new artworks by: Phyllis Bryce Ely, Aaron Delehanty, Andrea Durfee, Rachel Eng, Nate Hodge, Colin Lyons, Patricia Russotti, Jennifer Schinzing, Bill Stephens, Jean K Stephens, George Wegman
