Allison Watkins: Reilluminate OPENING RECEPTION

When: Fri., Aug. 21, 5-7 p.m. 2015

Spotlight Gallery Napa Valley Museum Most of our relationships with plants are during the day, during the magic of photosynthesis, a time when we can admire the visible beauty of nature lit up brightly by the sunlight. Watkins walks around at night, gathering plants and flowers with controlled lighting, illuminating the darkened garden that has receded since the sun has gone down. This process brings attention to the temporal light of the day, having much in common with the temporal existence of plants and flowers- their constantly changing shape and form calls attention to their short-lived life span.

Price: Free for members/$5 for non members
