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.
In his artist statement Lavine writes:
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.

About the Artist
The centerpiece of the exhibition is the artist’s monumental installation, Birth of a Nation (2014), which represents the abstracted figure of a black woman nursing a white infant against the backdrop of the first official flag of the United States. Suspended above a mound of earth, the quilt is surrounded by Towns’ ongoing Story Quilts series (2016–), a cycle of seven works in luminous fabrics and glass beads that narrate the life of Nat Turner and his 1831 rebellion.

This exhibition presents approximately 20 works that illustrate the honored place birds hold within numerous African cultures. Inspired by our recent acquisition of a rare Pende Gitenga mask of the early to mid-20th century, the exhibition considers the role of birds within initiation, healing, and harvest rituals; within home décor and security; and within hunting practices. Long considered wondrous beings that transcend known worlds, birds have enjoyed a strong and steady presence in African life for centuries.
