Art from the Left Coast highlights include:

A Small Miracle of Circumstance by Kimber Berry, a recent painting from latest series, Plastic Gardens. 
In this series, Kimber addresses the ongoing diminishing natural environments.  According to Kimber, "Amongst hundreds of thousands of miles of concrete and steel we feel a distance from nature and are compelled to create green spaces, oasis, parks and gardens of cut grass, pruned trees and waterfalls constructed of painted  concrete rocks encircled by highly designed flower beds, essentially nature on our terms.   I've constructed this series of paintings inspired by these plastic gardens."

Here's a look at the painting:
