The Forest Floor: Intimate Landscapes by Pat Crutchfield
November 30, 2022
The Robert Floyd Gallery presents Patricia Crutchfield’s photography exhibit The Forest Floor: Intimate Landscapes from Kestrel Land Trust Conservation Areas on view from November 1 through 30, 2022. For the past 18 months, Pat visited and photographed conservation areas that Kestrel has helped protect, producing intimate images of the land that delight the heart and soul. This exhibit springs from the Floyd Gallery’s recent exhibit, “Celebrate Kestrel Land Trust: 50 Years and Going Strong,” at the Monson House of Art courtesy of the Monson Arts Council. There, Pat curated the exhibit as well as exhibited her own 74 prints.
Pat is known for her annual social justice projects, namely A Chorus of Color and Light: Urban and Country Scapes; Communities of Hope: Gardening Through the Pandemic; and Celebrate Springfield Live with exhibits at the Monson House of Art, Easthampton Media, and The Robert Floyd Gallery.
“Pat’s artwork invites you to feel what she sees, as the viewer is taken through a cultural journey for each project,” says Robert Floyd. “Pat maintains her dedication and passion throughout her projects. Outdoors with camera in hand, Pat connects with her subjects being in the moment with them. Her images are alive with color, tight compositions, and a consistent seeing that radiates the energy she experiences capturing the images in the field. The spirit of her work benefits all.”
Pat also serves as curator of the Floyd Gallery, where she selects images, judges photo contests, and co-instructs workshops and seminars.
The exhibit “The Forest Floor: Intimate Landscapes from Kestrel Land Trust Conservation Areas” is open from November 1 through November 30. The Robert Floyd Gallery is open to the public Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Sundays from 1 pm – 5 pm.
Gallery receptions with refreshments will take place on Sunday, November 6, 13, 20, and 27, from 1 – 5 pm. Artist Conversations will take place on Sunday, November 13 and 20, at 3:00 pm.
