Mary Yeagley's "Ecoscapes" includes five of her architectural ceramic pieces dealing with various untouched landscapes. Each piece was carefully designed to illustrate the uniqueness of certain landscapes found on land, under water, and celestial objects.
The exhibition will highlight Riverscape, a piece made of terra cotta clay which contrasts swampland and river terrains along the Potomac River, showing the ecological differences between the two types of land. Forestscape, a full wall piece, focuses on the many different ecosystems within the Amazon Rainforest. The multiple panels showcase not only the different layers of the rainforest, but also how the plants and animals interact within their specific environment. The progression between panels gives the viewer a glimpse of the natural landscapes as they were without human influence.
