Jane Ingram Allen is one of 16 artists invited to exhibit in the exhibition “In Our Nature” curated by Meridith McNeal at the Corridor Gallery of the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation located at 334 Grand Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.  The exhibition opened on September 10, 2017, and continues through November 19, 2017.  The exhibition features art focused on nature and the state of our environment.  See the website at http://rushphilanthropic.org/exhibition/in-our-nature/ for more information about gallery hours and location.

In this show Jane is exhibiting two of her “Brooklyn Site Maps” created in 2003 during an artist-in-residency project at Kentler International Drawing Space, Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY (http://www.kentlergallery.org).  Below is a view of the current exhibition at Corridor Gallery with Jane’s “Red Hook Site Map” in the right foreground and a “Brooklyn Site Map” near the left end of the wall.  Jane created these map artworks using mixed media on handmade paper made in Brooklyn and collected debris from the streets of Red Hook to use in her interpretive maps of these areas of NYC.  Here is a link to more about the 2003 project Jane did at Kentler International Drawing Space:
