Even in almost idyllic communities like much of the Pioneer Valley and the Berkshires, changes to the environment become more and more prevalent every day.  Our collective awareness of environmental issues grows, too. Each of the participating photographers expresses that awareness in their own terms:  Robert Aller, Rick Colson, Stephen Petegorsky and Maurine Sutter, all residents of Western Mass. "Environment West" comprises important visual statements about change, pollution, nature and our approach to the environment.  It is deeply ironic that the inherent beauty of many of the images stands in sharp contrast to their subjects. Others reveal the sometimes hidden beauty in what nature offers us.

"Environment West" is curated by Rick Colson of Colson Gallery and www.picturelogue.net.
