Nature Reflected
Kari Snyder and Helen M. Webster
August 11 – September 29, 2010
Miami Beach Regional Library
227 22nd St. • 305.535.4219
Reception: Wednesday, August 11, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

The exhibition and installation feature individual and collaborative artwork by Miami based artists Helen Webster and Kari Snyder. Both share in common a fascination with Florida birds, plants, architecture, and domestic environments. The artists combined Webster’s paintings with Snyder’s printmaking to create a fresh series of works on linen, in addition to their individual work on paper, linen, and wood panel. The theme of the work is the influence nature has on our interior spaces both physically and subconsciously. The delicate influence of the nature around us, the habitat specific to Miami, and the importance of its balance and preservation are what this exhibition brings to light.
