Curator Nina Johnson, director of nearby Gallery Diet, handpicked three artists for the show. Samantha Salzinger photographs handmade miniature landscapes and then tweaks the transparencies. The result is diorama-like images of terrain that appear both natural and plastic. And Julia Hectmans video and photographs focus on not our alienation from nature but the serenity in finding wide-open spaces. Last, the exhibit also includes Richard Höglund, whose drawings evoke the ever-changing scenery outside a car window.
