131 Projects presents: â€œFrom Eden to Saharaâ€. This group exhibition takes its name from a book authored in 1920â€™s Florida by John Kunkel Small. It was mostly written during his many botanical research expeditions that Charles Deering and David Fairchild assisted with. During these adventures, Small, explored and photographed thousands of miles of Floridaâ€™s natural habitat. The book documents the early and severe degradation of Floridaâ€™s natural environment, plant life and Native American village sites.Â The works chosen for this exhibition, created by a local yet eclectic group of artists, reflect and modernize the themes explored in John Kunkel Smallâ€™s book. These pieces, in their own way, use nature as subject matter, material or process. Whether it’s gravity or depictions of mangroves each piece in this show has being selected for itâ€™s use of natural elements.
