FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Tara Austin’s Solo Exhibition Opens March 27, 2020!

On March 27th, Duluth artist Tara Austin’s solo exhibition Boreal Ornament III opens at Joseph Nease Gallery. We welcome you to join us in an exploration of the mathematically infinite. Employing designs both fractal and organic, Austin’s vast body of work is a testament to nature and reality. Her rich landscapes are of chaos, complexity, and order. They hold as much inherent beauty as a satellite image of a hurricane, a sunflowers' petals, or an assemblage of diatoms under a microscope. At every scale, Austin's work reminds us of both the rational and the emotional – the linear and non-linear, the opposite yet coexisting forms – that are a perfect mirror of the natural world around us.
