Barbara Roux Environments
February 7-April 5, 2012



The Emily Lowe Gallery-Hofstra University Museum presents ENVIRONMENTS by ECOARTNET artist Barbara Roux. She uses her daily interaction with natural habitats to inform her artistic work. This exhibition includes drawings, photographs, poetry and sculpture. Roux alters but does not disguise the elements from nature that comprise her sculpture. Her work focuses on the forest and cove where she lives on the north shore of Long Island. Roux hopes to inspire in her viewers an interest in the natural habitats and, from this interest, that they develop a desire to protect them.
