Art by Jim Toia, executive director and curator of the Karl Stirner Arts Trail, is included in an exhibition at the Rutgers University Zimmerli Art Museum’s Eisenberg Gallery, 71 Hamilton Street, New Brunswick, NJ, from Sept. 13-July 21.

Titled Notes on Threatened Landscapes, Toia’s artwork showcases his continuing exploration of the natural world.

Notes on Threatened Landscapes combines examples of Toia’s spore drawings, made with fungi foraged from the forested landscapes of Alaska, northern California, and New Jersey; rubbings and contact prints made from palm trees in Key West; anthill casts from south Texas; and drawings and hollow-cast sculptured rocks and boulders created during his recent residency at Joshua Tree National Park,” states the Zimmerli.
