“NATURE THEATER” PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT TO OPEN IN VITERBO UNIVERSITY GALLERY JAN. 25
LA CROSSE, Wis. – The photography of Linda Rossi will be on display in an exhibit entitled “Nature Theater” opening with a reception in the Viterbo University Gallery from 7:30–9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 25.
Rossi describes her work as “primarily large-scale photo installation including video and sculpture to illuminate both historical and current issues.” Her art has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg and the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art in Iran. Her work is also part of the permanent collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
“For years, photographer and installation artist Linda Rossi has illuminated the intimate relationship between the human personality and the Earth, seeking to engender our civic response to and reconnection with the sensuality of the planet,” wrote art critic Cynde Randall. “Rossi’s love for nature resonates in her art, leading us to the things we forgot we, too, once loved.”
Rossi is an associate professor of art and the chair of the art and art history departments at Carleton College in Northfield, Minn. She teaches photography, digital photography, and critical issues in contemporary art.
“Nature Theater” will run until Friday, Feb. 24. There is no admission fee to the gallery, which is located on the third floor of the Fine Arts Center on campus. The gallery is open from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. when school is in session.
