Denny Dimin Gallery is pleased to present a new virtual exhibition A Lovers’ Herbal by Ann Shelton from February 4th through March 27th, 2021. The exhibition features nine new photographs from Shelton’s ongoing series jane says all completed in response to her trip to New York City in 2019.

Shelton’s work is significant in this moment not only of the politicization of women’s health and the #metoo movement, but also in the time of climate change and the coronavirus, when a naturally occurring pathogen is causing worldwide devastation and death. Her work argues that our mismanagement of nature engendered incremental loss of knowledge and understanding that we cannot easily build back, and that continues to pose a danger to human existence.
