The Opening Reception will take place on Saturday, December 8 starting at 2pm. The Reception is complimentary for OMA members and free with museum admission.
Driven by her insatiable fascination with environmental degradation, Jen Trute’s surreal paintings poignantly evoke awareness of the human impact on nature and the fragility of our global ecosystem. Approaching her subject matter with scientific detail, Trute’s dystopian narratives reference a myriad of interests ranging from natural sciences, climate change, endangered animals and art history to sociopolitical concerns.
This retrospective exhibition features Trute’s work from approximately 1998-2011 including paintings and preparatory drawings and early portrait paintings that show her focused evolution into environmentally-conscious art. Enviroscapes is the first museum retrospective since the artist’s unfortunate passing in 2011.
Tuesday-Saturday 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday 1 to 4 pm.
Free admission every Tuesday in 2012 and the first Sunday of every month. General admission is $8, $5 for seniors and free for students and military.
