Photographer David Lavine combines his love of toys with his love of nature in his playful, environmentally-sensitive photographs. The collection of work explores the possibility of our “natural” world being replaced by mechanized and plastic inhabitants born out of ecological conditions we are creating now through poor disposal habits.

This exhibition features the work of aerial photographer, Peter Stern. Inspired by both landscape and color, his photography is reminiscent of abstract paintings. The work presents the similarities between the landscape and textures of paint. The exhibit will run from May 9th to May 20th, with a reception on May 11th, from 6pm to 8pm.
The student curators from UMBC include Valentina Anyanwu, Maggie Frost, Nicolle Konkel, Selene LaMarca, Sheila McFarland-Holt, Nicole Rohrer, Adam Stevens, and Kelly Thompson.
