Women and nature have always been inseparable, whether the context is biological, mythological, psychological, theoretical, medical, or academic. Still, when female artists turn their attention to the natural environment, the frisson that arises from seeing women in the wild—from a woman’s perspective—can be revelatory. Painter Shannon Estlund and photographer Melissa Borman return to the wild in dual exhibitions, with work that blends mystery with realism that takes viewers back to the primordial garden. There will be an opening reception from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, September 7.
