Tommy Reyes, assistant curator at Los Manos Gallery in Chicago, and artist Michelle Peterson-Albandoz
AN EXHIBITION – “Revive” – with Chicago-based artist Michelle Peterson-Albandoz opened at Long View Gallery in Washington, D.C. on Thursday evening, March 31.
THE ARTIST grew up surrounded by forests in both Connecticut and Puerto Rico, and found a connection to them that has lasted throughout her creative career. Experiencing first-hand the pristine quality and balance of these ecosystems made her aware of the effect humans have on the environment outside of those woods. Now having lived in Chicago for nearly 20 years, Peterson-Albandoz has been surrounded by constantly changing urban landscape, full of both destruction and construction.
