Earthly Matters

February 7 – April 28, 2023


Earthly Matters presents a selection of Bartlett’s recent works that examine humankind’s impact on and interaction with nature’s elements. Bartlett’s subjects, both human and animal, find themselves in precarious environmental situations, either from their own doing or by forces beyond their control. Bartlett’s appreciation for the beauty of ordinary moments imbues his work with an underlying luminosity and frankness. His larger-than-life scenes break down the barriers between the subjects on canvas and the viewers, who are invited to contemplate their role in the narrative.

This exhibition was curated by the Gibbes Museum of Art and is a traveling exhibition.

Public Reception: Thursday, February 16th, from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST

Artist Talk: Thursday, March 2nd, from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM EST
