On View in Kapnick Hall July 15 – October 29, 2023
Working somewhere between scientific observation and romantic idealism, Ehren Fritz Gerhard creates moments filled with vibrant beauty and childlike wonder. Using playful rhythms found in the natural world, his intense compositions seem to breathe and move, imbuing energy that is both elevating and deeply calming.
This exhibition is included with Garden admission.
