‘Oceana Phenomena’ by Jane Baldridge Opening

June 7 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us for the grand opening of the newest exhibition in the Cornell Art Museum: “Oceana Phenomena: Sea Stories and Sea Level Chronicles” by Jane Baldridge

Title: “Oceana Phenomena: Sea Stories and Sea Level Chronicles” by Jane Baldridge

Jane Baldridge has a fascination, maybe an obsession, with water for as long as she remembers. She was captivated by watching childhood sandcastles fall to the continued impertinent rolling in of waves and tides. It was but a miniature version of what happens all around the globe. Much of the coastal areas of the planet have reason to watch their own erosion, subsidence and the rising .des reshape their world. Jane believes that people who do not go out on the ocean and witness its power and beauty may not understand what happens with the rushing water borne on a storm. These are the things that inspire her artwork.
