Avanguardia, an exhibition by Savannah-based artist Lisa D. Watson explores the encroachment of the built environment on the natural landscape.

Her environmentally-conscious practice amplifies the exhibition’s primary concern: that the modern conveniences demanded by a growing population can destroy indigenous wildlife and ecological habitats and humanity should strive to strike a balance between the vigor of a burgeoning city and the energy of the natural surroundings.
