Naturescape Gallery presents “Beach Trash” by artist Suzanna Nickerson
August 17, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until September 4, 2020
Naturescape Gallery at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History is proud to present “Beach Trash” by artist Suzanna Nickerson August 2020 – September 4, 2020
Suzanna’s work with beach trash started about three years ago as a personal mission: to display in a visually clear way, exactly what she found on beach walks lasting anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. Expressing herself artistically through collage, arranging color, shapes and texture in dramatic patterns, allows viewers to see the variety and amount of garbage, primarily plastic garbage, washing up on the shores of our local beaches, impacting the health and well-being of wildlife on shore as well as wildlife in our oceans.
Suzanna grew up in Chatham in an artistic family with little formal training and describes her artwork as “primitive”.
