A House of One Room
Cameron Art Museum
Coming Late 2020
How hard to realize that every camp of men or beast has this glorious starry firmament for a roof! In such places standing alone on the mountain top it is easy to realize that whatever special nests we make – leaves and moss like the marmots and birds, or tents and piled stones – we all dwell in a house of one room – the world with the firmament for its roof – and are sailing the celestial spaces without leaving any track.
John Muir (Unpublished Journals of John Muir, 1938, p. 321)
This new virtual exhibition is a sneak preview into what will be a full-scale exhibition by Elizabeth Bradford during CAM’s exhibition schedule in later 2020-2021 (actual dates TBA). Bradford’s masterful paintings originate from an intimate observation and profound reverence for the natural environment. These selections offer an invitation to share Bradford’s journey as she explores the wonder of the natural world. The reverence she has for the environment and all of its inhabitants, can inspire a deeper awareness of our interconnectedness and responsibility for its preservation and survival. This exhibition is made possible thanks to the generous underwriting of the Wells Fargo Foundation. Wells Fargo is proud to support access to arts experiences and advocate for environmental preservation.
