“ditch seed,”  still from video, by Annika Johnson, Jesse Meredith, Sarah Rowe, 2021

Inspired by what was once a sprawling sea of grasses stretching from the Rocky Mountains to the Mississippi River where flora and fauna thrived, ditch seed examines the prairie and processes of colonization which whittled it down to 1% of what it once was.

The July/August offering by Amplify Arts at its Generator Space gallery, is a collaborative installation by three artists: Annika Johnson, Jesse Meredith and Sarah Rowe. The exhibit was curated by Jared Packard, Exhibitions Manager at Omaha’s Bemis Center.

The show runs through August 27th. The Gallery presently is only open by appointment and limited to groups of 10 or smaller. Generator Space is located at 1804 Vinton Street. Visitors should register through Eventbrite or email peter@amplifyarts.org to schedule a time to visit outside of regular gallery appointment hours. Face masks are requested.
