Maria Mangano explores her connection with the natural world through prints, works on paper, and installations. Her work focuses on the intersection of nature, museums, academia and science to address issues of wildness, wilderness, conservation, memory, and humanness. She says these systems “create a lens that affects our understanding of nature: how that lens influences people’s opinions, how it alienates us from or compares us to the natural world, how it inspires awe and wonder, and how it causes us to alter nature in the very act of observing it.  Studying the systems and methods we use to dissect and define [the natural world] tell us as much about humanity as they do the natural world; nature, on the other side of the lens of human culture, becomes a mirror.”

Mangano earned her B.F.A. in Printmaking, Drawing & Painting from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA. Her work was recently exhibited at SPACE Gallery, Future Tenant, and Fe Gallery, all in Pittsburgh, PA; at Arts Monongahela and West Liberty University in West Virginia; and the Strohl Art Center at the Chautauqua Institute in Western NY.  In 2014 her work was included in Errol Fuller’s book The Passenger Pigeon, commemorating the 100th anniversary of Martha, the last Passenger Pigeon. Mangano is a native of Syracuse, NY, and maintains a studio in Pittsburgh’s South Side Slopes neighborhood.

This exhibition is funded in part by The Sherwood Group and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency. The Courthouse Gallery hours during exhibitions are Tuesday through Friday 12 – 5 pm, Saturday 12 – 4 pm, and all other times by appointment. The Courthouse Gallery is located at the side entrance of the Old County Courthouse, corner of Canada and Lower Amherst Streets, Lake George, NY.
