In this exhibit, Ginger Hanrahan's rich paintings explore her intricate relationship to the environment, with a particular focus on the shape and color of nature's often overlooked items. Amanda Martin's photographs—represented as circular mandalas—explore the colorful and repetitive structure of flowers and plants.

She has exhibited her work extensively, including the Bowery Gallery in New York City, Silvermine Guild Art Center in New Canaan, and The Bruce S. Kershner Gallery in Fairfield. She currently resides in Bethel, CT.

Amanda Martin studied architectural history at Smith College and did post-graduate work in textile design at the Rhode Island School of Design. Her work has been showcased extensively in the region, including the John Slade Ely House, the Eli Whitney Museum and the New Haven Lawn Club. She currently lives in New Haven, CT.
