All living things have natural habitats that suit their unique needs, from the transient stops along a bird’s migratory route to a parched desert where some plants and animals actually thrive. Human beings can create artificial habitats that to us feel “natural,” but we also have the ability to imagine less concrete spaces—mental, emotional, spiritual—where we feel at home within ourselves. While finding a place to nurture life is crucial to all living things, some are lucky enough to find a place to flourish, while others struggle without adequate resources or refuge.
For Natural Habitats Cabrillo Gallery invited artists from all over the country to submit their interpretations of this theme. From these offerings, Jurors Donna Seager and Suzanne Gray of Seager Gray Gallery in Mill Valley, CA selected the work for this exhibition, which presents a multitude of responses, from natural and human-built physical locations to more abstract metaphysical spaces, in a wide variety of media.
