Cyclical, An Exhibit by Beth Blake and Jim Tisnado

ECU School of Art and Design professors, Beth Blake and Jim Tisnado's home sits on two and a half acres in rural eastern North Carolina.  It was once part of a large family farm.  Corn, cotton, soybeans and tobacco were the primary crops grown in the fields, but the soil was depleted by years of over use. 

Blake and Tisnado have worked hard to transform their land by planting trees and gardens, creating a rich habitat.  

The exhibition of Blake's drawings and Tisnado's ceramic sculptures are inspired by their experience.  They push beyond the confines of their yard to address larger questions of global agricultural challenges.
