Nature-Inspired Art to be Displayed at Duquesne University
Found II, paintings and collages inspired by nature and produced by artist Lisa Tarkett Reed, explores the relationships and patterns in nature.
Reed's work presents organic forms and is inspired by her collection of natural objects. In her collages, Reed recycles objects by piecing together mixed media artworks after sifting through piles of drawings and ephemera, cutting them into squares and placing them into grids.
When: Wednesday, March 2, through Wednesday, March 30
Where: Duquesne University's Les Idees Gallery, Duquesne Union, 600 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh.
