DETAILS: New York artist Ruth Wetzel spends hours trekking through wetlands in waders photographing magnified views of diverse plant life and ecosystems found in New York. She isolates intimate details in the swamps—plumes of sediment, verdant foliage, and colorful reflections—allowing abstract forms to shine. Swampland includes over 30 small and large format photographs of wetlands around her upstate Stone Ridge, New York home, as well as a newly created series of photographs documenting New York City's Alley Pond Park in Queens, Prospect Park Lake, and Spuyten Duyvil Creek.
This exhibition is FREE and open to the public. For more information, please call (212) 360-8163.
