Other 2013 visual arts highlights include:
ink_d gallery presents Back To Nature - Maria Rivans at Ink_d Gallery & Studio. Maria Rivans invites you into her fantastical world by converting ink_d gallery into a jungle environment, transporting us physically into her surreal world in which to explore her humorous and bizarre 3D collages. Rivans' solo show explores the idea of a growing estrangement from the natural world, and attempts to reconnect us with nature. Warning! Expect a sensory overload.
