This season, University of Central Florida’s art gallery squeezed the pump handle before anyone else did,” writes Richard Reep for Orlando Weekly in a recent article covering the exhibition. “Kathleen Thum’s Covering Carbon opened in August, and it’s a fitting solo exhibit now, what with gas prices and an uneasy self-awareness rising together.” 

The fossil fuel focused exhibition explores the environmental effects of excessive carbon emissions through her works of “huge, multi-hued paper cutouts” and graphite on mylar, featuring works such as “Petroscape,” “Blowdown Stack” and “Offshore 2.”

Covering Carbon is on view at the UCF Art Gallery through September 29. Read the full story on Orlando Weekly.
