Much of human activity is spent either glorifying or mastering our natural surroundings. Whether nurturing a garden into harmony with a built environment, or finding a natural oasis within a large city, people’s interaction with nature is constantly evolving.

Beginning July 21, the Stephen Bulger Gallery presents “Land Use,” a group exhibition of works by Robert Burley, Dana Fritz, Geoffrey James and Jamey Stillings that asks the question, “What is our relationship to the world around us and how has it evolved over the years?”

Through the use of photography, each of these four artists have depicted a particular connection with nature–from European gardens and Toronto’s expansive park system to the desert regions of the American Southwest.

This exhibition runs from July 21 to September 8, 2018 at Stephen Bulger Gallery (1356 Dundas St W) with an opening reception on Thursday, July 26 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. To find out more info, click here.
