    Seven recent artworks from "The Orchard" series were selected for a group show curated by Jessica Kooiman Parker.

    "Botanic" is an exhibition that takes a collective look at our intimate relationship to the plant kingdom. Plants create and regulate the air we breathe, they provide us with food, medicine, textiles and building materials. Through thought provoking conceptual work, installations, botanical paintings and prints, sculptures, wood work and a freshly installed seed library, Botanic attempts to examine and honor the gifts of our botanical friends.

    Botanic opens on March 8th from 5-9 pm. Free and open to the public to dress up in your favorite botanical wear, bring a plant to share at the plant swap (inside the Alluvion) and meet and mingle with the exhibiting artists. Celebrate the diversity of plant love featured in our exhibitions while enjoying plant-based foods, drinks and music.

    My drawing "At Present (Temma Lowly)" was part of a group exhibition titled "Deposition: Drawn" with 20+ artists at North Park University that opened on February 14.

    This exhibition was curated by Tim Lowly (professor and director at NPU) and related to his daughter Temma, who has significant physical disabilities. Tim sent each of the participating artists a unique prompt (somehow related to Temma) and asked us to make a drawing and accompanying text related to our prompt. More info about Tim's work relating to Temma at www.timlowly.com and via Instagram.

    "Nik Burkhart & Marti Liddle-Lameti: Reverberations"

    Two person exhibition at the Elizabeth Lane Oliver Center for the Arts (Frankfort, MI) ran from February 24th through March 31st.

    This exhibition by myself and Marti Liddle-Lameti contained a broad spectrum of textiles, paintings, drawings, sculpture and fiber art completed over the course of the last five years. The combined artworks explored the relationship between humans and the natural world and examine how each shapes the other over the course of time. The title "Reverberations" asks the viewer to consider the similarities and differences of the two artists' artistic practices and material choices. Echoes of trees, sky, water and other natural forms emerge as common threads, creating an awareness of the deep impact that the environment has on the lives of both artists.
