Barbara Roux:

February 7- April 5, 2012
Emily Lowe Gallery

Barbara Roux is a combined-media artist, poet and active conservationist. She uses her daily interaction with natural habitats to inform her artistic work. This exhibition includes drawings, photographs, poetry and sculpture. Roux alters but does not disguise the elements from nature that comprise her sculpture. Her work focuses on the forest and cove where she lives on the north shore of Long Island. Roux hopes to inspire in her viewers an interest in the natural habitats and, from this interest, that they develop a desire to protect them.

Roux earned a master of fine art degree at Hunter College, City University of New York and completed a bachelor of art degree at the College of Old Westbury, State University of New York. Her projects have been shown in museums, galleries and universities including solo exhibitions at Lyman Allyn Art Museum, Discovery Museum, Islip Art Museum and C.U.N.Y. Queens College Art Center. Her photographs have been featured on the covers of Orion Magazine, Annals of Earth and The Fourth River. The New York Times, Art New England, Sculpture Magazine, New York Magazine, Newsday, Audubon, Arts Magazine and Volume Magazine have all written about her artistic endeavors.
