BIOLOGICAL REGIONALISM: MONROE, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES
Biological Regionalism will feature paintings, videos, and objects created during and after artist Alberto Rey’s visit to Monroe in spring 2012. Rey strives to document the flora and fauna in the areas he visits for posterity’s sake and as a means of educating his audiences about the importance of conservation. While he does not directly portray human culture in his work, it is us that end on being on exhibition. Rey is a Distinguished Professor for Research and Creative Activity at SUNY Fredonia as well as an Orvis endorsed fly fishing guide. This exhibition will appeal to art enthusiasts and outdoorsmen alike.
