“Concrete & Grassland explores the juxtaposition of the natural landscape and the human constructed cityscape. This call for entry asked artists to submit works that explore either the soft lines of nature or the hard lines of urban structures—or a combination of both. This exhibition focuses on the contrasts of both colour and line, and the ways in which the natural world has been altered.
