The University of Mary Washington Galleries is pleased to present Where Earth Meets Sky: Reflections on Nature from UMW’s Permanent Collection. This exhibition features landscape scenes in a variety of media, including works by Chase Chen, Brett Livingstone-Strong, and Herb Jackson. Created by UMW Interns Andrew Elliott, Carolyn Riley, Madeline Williams, Meredith Glasco, and Sophia Maldonado, this show aims to provide a space for the viewer to contemplate their relationship with nature.
