This is a debut solo exhibit exploring the question of beauty in the natural world, one we view as wild and chaotic. What is considered beautiful and what is not? How does that clash with our own aesthetics and understanding of our everyday natural surroundings?
The exhibit asks the viewer to remember their inner eight-year-old self when everything you saw outside at your feet was a new discovery, everything miraculous. There were no judgments, just awe.
Works on paper include large-scale drawings, watercolors, stories, and quotes reflecting on these thoughts as it relates to ourselves, climate change, and our interconnected relationship to all living things.

Terra Kind Studio showcases the creative work of visual artist and designer Kristin Maija Peterson. Growing up among prairies, lakes, rivers, and oak savannas along with her project work with environmental nonprofit organizations have collectively influenced her creative path. Kristin works in watercolor, graphite, color pencil, oil pastels and pen and ink, interpreting in detail the beautiful chaos within native wild spaces and its inhabitants found living there. She sees all living creatures as kin and is always kind to spiders.
