The Marshes is a solo exhibition by Artist Member Joan Baldwin. The works imaginatively present saltwater marsh scenes, with birds, insects, mammals, reptiles, and fish going about their daily routines. Her vivid imagery reveals a keen eye for detail and composition as well as her background in illustration, and her subjects demonstrate her sense of humor and appreciation for the setting where she draws inspiration, the Nauset marshes at Cape Cod. The resulting imagery incorporates a range of wildlife in surreal scenes that hint at larger narratives.
