Wild Suburbia by Andrea Cybyk


Fields and Forests 2 by Andrea Cybyk


Andrea Cybyk, our August solo artist, finds beauty in the scourge of gardeners everywhere: common weeds. Wild Suburbia celebrates these botanical outcasts—from the petite and humble to the huge and invasive—that thrive in sidewalk cracks, abandoned fields, gravelly roadsides, and other forgotten spaces. In Cybyk’s colorful artworks—a combination of painting and printmaking—these uninvited garden guests appear wondrous.

Cybyk will be in conversation about Wild Suburbia and her artistry on Sunday, August 21, from 2–3 pm. RSVP here.
