The William Ris Gallery is pleased to present Seen and Unseen: Paintings and Drawings by Scott McIntire, a solo exhibition of 40 paintings and drawings that explore the interconnection of art, nature and science and the environmental effects of technology. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, April 7, 4-7 pm.
Scott McIntire, (b. 1945, Salem, Oregon, lives and works in Greenport and Brooklyn, NY), is at the forefront of the environmentally conscious SciArt movement of today. He focuses on the natural world, that he loves, and its cohabitation with energy fields - cellular transmission, radio waves, animal sounds, subatomic particles and microbiome. His paintings transport the viewer into a botanical and zoological paradise while also conveying the effects of climate change and the eminent ecological transformation of the North Fork, due to agricultural and housing development.
