Nature Nurture Nature is a three person exhibition featuring ceramic animal sculptures by Deana Bada Maloney, abstract nature paintings by Jill Sutton and figurative paintings by Donets V.S.

Deana Bada Maloney's work is a study of living forms. Utilizing humor, she engages the view to reflect on the sad portrayal of animals having to adapt to their new landscape due to our waste problem. 

Jill Sutton's paintings are inspired by collected photographs documenting conflict, protest, and revolution. These paintings are not so much a response to the photographs, as they are an initial reaction.

Donets V.S. presents a body of acrylic paintings entitled “I am - You,” narrating a story of a queer refugee in search of belonging.
