Octavia Art Gallery is pleased to participate in Prospect 1.5, showcasing the exhibition “The Machine in the Garden,” featuring artists Brian Borrello, Ralph Bourque, Daphne Loney, Christy Speakman and Michel Varisco.

Nature and technology have never really hit it off, perhaps because it is a universal human folly to believe that if enough technology is applied to any situation, nature can be brought under control.

The five Louisiana artists in this exhibition express through their work some of the implications of this deep-seeded conflict.

The Machine in the Garden will be on display
from December 4, 2010 - January 8, 2011
