The Marin Art & Garden Center presents the exhibition “Between Nature & Technology,” multi-media artworks by Courtney Egan and David Sullivan, in The Studio at MAGC March 3 – April 16, 2017.

The opening reception is Friday, March 3 from 5 – 8 pm with a talk by the artists at 5 pm.

Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday 10 am – 4 pm.

The exhibition and opening event are free and open to the public.

Having worked and lived together for 25 years, New Orleans-based artists David Sullivan and Courtney Egan’s aesthetics and themes crisscross with a concern for how technology is changing our experience of nature, of what the natural world is, and what its future holds.  Sullivan’s animated, color-saturated landscapes deal with our civilization’s long-term impact on the landscape.  Egan uses a variety of new-media methods and techniques, including computer coding, to explore the prevailing relationship between people, technology, and nature.

Between Nature & Technology features recent works from the artists, filling the galleries at The Studio, the recently renovated historic building that is now the hub of cultural programming at MAGC.

Antonia Adezio, executive director of the Marin Art & Garden Center, encountered this work at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art where it was shown in 2016.  “Courtney and David are working with powerful themes and both artists use new media to connect the viewer with nature and their own concepts of beauty.  The visitor will be immersed in their vision, which is thought-provoking and inspiring.” Flynn O’Brien, who curated the exhibition for SVMA, will introduce the artists’ talk on March 3rd.
