GREENWICH, Conn. -- Artist Blane De St. Croix will present a lecture in Greenwich about his work on miniature landscapes, including two pieces on view in the Bruce Museum’s current exhibition, "Small Scales: Lands of Enchantment."
The event on Wednesday, Nov. 30, will begin with a wine and cheese reception at 6 p.m. followed by De St. Croix's discussion, from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. It will be held at the Bruce Museum.
Admission is $5 for museum members and $15 for non-members. Advance registration at Eventbrite.com is recommended.
De St. Croix is a sculptor who works with geopolitical landscapes that serve as flashpoints for discussion about the far-reaching social implications of climate change and contested borders, according to a release from the Bruce Museum.
His collaborative, research-based practice bridges the fields of visual art, cultural geography and environmental activism; aesthetics and social justice are given equal weight in his work, the release said.
Recent projects have taken De St. Croix to the Svalbard Archipelago, the Gobi Desert, the Mexican-American border and the wetlands surrounding New Orleans.
His work has been exhibited internationally at a number of venues, including the Kathmandu International Triennial, Nepal; Smack Mellon, Brooklyn; Gasworks Gallery, London; Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island City; The Asia Society, Houston; and his gallery, Fredericks & Freiser, New York.
The Bruce Museum is at 1 Museum Drive, Greenwich.
