52nd Chautauqua Annual and some other cool art

Sunday was the opening of the 52nd Chautauqua Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art, as well as an exhibition of National Geographic photography by Annie Griffiths Belt, and some incredibly neat sculptures by Anne Lemanski. I had not seen her work until now, but clearly, I am a fan.These animals are sewn together from paper. The deer is made from aerial photographs of housing developments, and the pygmy hog (native to India) is made of paper with images of brushfires. Inside the pig's nose:
My favorite bird of the group, made of an astral map:
Materials included old illustrations, collage, film negatives, and road maps.
This piece (out in the sculpture garden, and part of the Annual) is by Roberly Bell, who is also coming to teach here this summer.
