A Tale of Two Valleys explores connections between climatic shifts in vastly different landscapes. Featuring photographs from Jessica Hays’ series The Sun Sets Midafternoon, Todd Anderson’s work with receding glaciers, and new collaborative works from both artists. Hays’ examine the immediate aftermath of megafires on surrounding communities and what the experience of local fires are like, interweaving narratives of ecological devastation, collective trauma, and climate grief. Similarly, Anderson’s work asks us to think about landscapes that will all too quickly become places that once were, as glaciers rapidly retreat, and face the mortality of place. Additionally, Hays and Anderson created together new pieces combining images integral to both their processes, which operate as both echoes and sounding boards for the other and tell new stories about our changing planet. This show invites us to consider our rapidly shifting planet through wide ranging imagery and approaches from two artists.
