Celebrate the opening of “InBetween Worlds InterTwined” from 5 to 7 p.m. July 13 at the George Marshall Store Gallery. The show, curated by Anna Dibble and Joe Hemes, will be on view through Aug. 18.

The exhibition brings together six artists, including the curators, whose work is driven by a deep emotional connection with, and concern for, the natural world and its inhabitants. Included works reflect the power of metaphor, poetry and humor, while emphasizing the importance of Earth’s “InterTwined” web of life.

Anna Dibble’s paintings present imaginary narratives about life on Earth, emerging from a sense that all living beings are refugees of some kind.

Tim Christensen uses sgraffito on porcelain in intricate explorations of shifting ecological systems.

Joe Hemes addresses the realities of climate disruption with mythical, future birds that ask viewers to consider their place in an optimistic re-imagining of our world.

Andreas von Huene brings stone to life in organic sculptures inspired by forms and figures from his natural surroundings.

Anne Neely’s paintings represent a fragile balance between beauty and foreboding in the context of a changing planet, and our presence — or absence — within it.

Tom Zetterstrom’s black-and-white portraits of trees represent the diversity and beauty of America’s forest resources, recorded over a period of three decades.
