Means to An End:
Means to an End explores the ties between the natural world and the different purposes it serves in art. The show sheds light on the natural world as more than the subject, but as source material and canvas. Means to an End brings together artists of various cultures and perspectives, all represented through an array of mediums - sculpture, collage, video, and photography.

Personally, I would have totally rearranged this show. The front room suffers the most by the disjointedness of the "left-overs," (none of which are white or wood) which include graphite drawings, an interactive sculpture and a too-small-for-its-space installation of photographs, their assorted props and chocolate cameos. While I took close-up images of this installation to highlight its more interesting details, the MD Art Place website has a view of the entire installation, looking teeny in it's corner.
I would have loved to see Christian Benefiel's interactive piece (above) placed in the back room of the gallery, alongside Penny Forester's interactive viewing machines, and Ellen Harper's softer installations paired with the delicate paper piece by Aniko Makranczy and the middle room pieces. Also, black and white photo next to black and white drawing...why not? In the front room with Lauren Boilini's large painting? Yes!
