Joseph Bellows Gallery opens two summer shows
Dana Montlack, cc71, 2017.

LA JOLLA, CA.- Joseph Bellows Gallery announces its exhibitions, Dana Montlack: Seeing Through Water, Seeing Through Weather and Summer Selections; a group exhibition featuring work by many of the gallery’s artists. The exhibitions are on view through July 27, 2018.

Throughout the main gallery, Summer Selections features the photographs of: Charles Johnstone, Betty Hahn, Judy Fiskin, Roger Minick, Grant Mudford, Stephen A. Scheer, John Schott, Sage Sohier, Jack D. Teemer, Jr., Roger Vail, and others whose images express the subtle joys, grand adventures and classical themes of summertime.

Running concurrently with Summer Selections, Joseph Bellows Gallery is presenting in its Atrium gallery, Dana Montlack: Seeing Through Water, Seeing Through Weather. In this solo exhibition the artist presents her newest body of work, merging artistic and scientific elements to assemble a visual dialogue about the vexing problem of climate change. In exploring this environmental concern, the artist combines a myriad of images: plankton and microscopic life forms are juxtaposed with bathometric and hydrographic maps, spectrograms, and nautical charts specific to California.

Seeing through Water, Seeing Through Weather brings attention to the effects of Carbon dioxide buildup on marine ecology and biodiversity. The installation of photographic images visualizes the research of Madfredi Manizza, Jules Jaffey, and Alexander Gershunov of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, who investigate changes in marine life and the environment over time. If global warming continues to accelerate at the current rate, many forms of marine life may become extinct due to the permanent modifications in oceanic properties of salinity, nutrients, and oxygen.

In exploring this environmental impact, the artist combines a myriad of images: plankton and microscopic life forms are juxtaposed with bathometric and hydrographic maps, spectrograms, and nautical charts specific to California; suggesting that marine biodiversity will be greatly impacted unless global ocean warming and acidification are reversed.

Seeing Through Water, Seeing Through Weather presents a series of digitally collaged and variably sized chromogenic prints mounted to plexiglass that take the form of water droplets.

Dana Montlack holds a BFA in sculpture from the University of California at Santa Cruz, and a MFA in mixed media from the Otis Parsons College of Art and Design, Los Angeles.
