Many artists are inspired by the world they inhabit, and the current exhibition, “Environmental Impact: Selections from the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation,” showcases some artistic views of a changing environment. The show runs through Feb. 21 at the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard.
The environment is strongly affected by the Earth’s relentlessly evolving weather conditions and man-made stimuli. This exhibit shows how artists have reproduced, commented and critiqued the ever-changing environment, whether the result of nature’s forces or human interventions. It brings together different approaches to the subject — both formal and conceptual. One example is “Full Moon,” acrylic on canvas with cutout paper by Mi Ju, shown here.
The show is curated by Billie Milam Weisman, director of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, and funded by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.
The exhibition features artwork by Lita Albuquerque, Peter Alexander, James Bachman, Radcliffe Bailey, Jerrald Balance, Zigi Ben-Haim, Kelly Berg, Louisa Chase, Dawn Dedeaux, Daniel Dove, Courtney Egan, Andy Goldsworthy, Joe Goode, Todd Hebert, Gegam Kacherian, Won Ju Lim, Jen Liu, Mi Ju, Andy Moses, Gina Phillips, Andrew Piedilato, Linda Ridgway, Edward Ruscha, Charles Simonds, Ryozo Tsumaki, Matt Wedel, Neil Welliver, Frederick S. Wight and Dustin Yellin.
