BC Space Gallery is pleased to present Nature Prevails featuring Southern California Artists, a non-profit association dedicated to advancing the dialogue, education, inspiration and interaction of its members to enhance their creative endeavors. For this exhibition, eighteen SCA artists responded to the challenge to present artwork that focuses on mankind’s complex relationship with nature at a time when sages and scientists alike are concerned about the future viability of that relationship. The exhibition, curated by gallery director Mark Chamberlain, includes painting, photography, and sculpture that collectively address many of those concerns.
