poster for Christine Hughes "Common Ground"

This event has ended.

Her deep connection to the natural world informs the work of Christine Hughes. Weeds, twigs, compost -- what might be viewed as the detritus of the garden -- are celebrated in these intricate drawings, paintings and installations that invite us to wander outside of our imprinted parameters of expectations.

"I explore Nature, not just as a subject but as a process of creation... Nature has never failed to make the most genuine sense out of the meaning of our existence in the universe... One summer day, as I was weeding my garden, I happened to look over at the pile of weeds I had just pulled. I went to my studio and brought out paper and pen and made a small drawing right then and there. This series is the result of that moment."

Hughes came to New York in the early 1980's, from studying at Wayne State University and living in downtown Detroit. Her work has been shown in numerous venues in New York, both in the city and around the state, and in Detroit. She was Artist in Residence at the Millay Colony.
