Dana Berardinis: Forgotten Lands: Recent Works of Dana Berardinis
September 25, 2019 - January 16, 2020

 I have always been fascinated and drawn to the various kinds of swamp lands and the life that exists within them. My current body of work focuses on the different types of wetland areas in Northwest Montana and the significance they serve to the landscape. Wetlands are among the largest and most diverse ecosystems in the world and act as the earth’s filter. They can often be overlooked and disregarded, perceived as ugly or as wasted acreage. Invasive species are also a major threat to these areas and can eventually overtake them completely. - Berardinis, 2017
