LONGBOAT KEY, FL – Karen Lee Sobol recently expanded her collaborative partnerships to the animal kingdom. While painting along the Gulf of Mexico, an egret visited Sobol for several consecutive days, observing the artist’s paint and act of painting, eventually becoming a color consultant. The work depicted in the image is Painting by the Sea with the Sea Grape Tree, which Sobol began by tracing the moving shadows of the overhead tree in crayon before moving to paint. Together this work and Birds Sea Me form a series of sea-soaked canvases which retain the memory of this special time on the Gulf.
BOSTON, MA – Childs Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition Life Is a Beautiful Place: A Radical Collaboration, on view from March 15 to May 13, 2018.

These artists connect art and science to create a visual, visceral language about global environmental change and its implications for life on earth. The term “Life Is a Beautiful Place”, introduced by featured artist Karen Lee Sobol, is meant to take the spotlight off negative connotations associated with climate change, instead focusing on a positive call for action.
