The latest exhibit at the Twiggs Gallery will be “Intertwined: Nature, Chaos, Hope...” An opening artists’ reception will be Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m. It will be on display through Oct. 28.

Tracy Hayes, Victoria Hussey, William Turner and Gretchen Woodman became friends while pursuing MFA degrees at the New Hampshire Institute of Art. In their conversations, they discovered a shared interest in culture, humanity and ecology.

The artists in the exhibit have created works that explore the duality of nature: the delicate fragility and powerful forces of the natural world.

Woodman’s work explores the human and animal relationship. Turner portrays nature’s force decomposing the man-made machine crumbling to rust and moss. Hussey’s mixed-media landscapes show organic forms and elemental forces. Hayes’ images suggest a behind-the-scenes view of nature overcoming human chaos.
