We have become a society of zombie-like deadwalkers, navigating through life tethered to Facebook or plugged in to music, ignoring nature and our surroundings. Artist Barbara Attwell wants us to remember that there’s another way, to instead tune in to the underlying rhythms and patterns in life and art and recognize the presence of the other. “Whatever the ‘other’ is doesn’t matter: It’s personal, God, psychic energy; it’s something else going on that we don’t have a handle on,” says Attwell, adding that alienation occurs when we think we’re above nature. “It’s very delusional, and it creates a peculiar poverty of the soul in the sense that we’re removed from it.” The one-time environmentalist stalked a felter in Ireland to learn more about the 1,000-year-old technique, then brushed up on Jung’s The Red Book: Liber Novus, and is ready to take us on a mythological journey through the woods and under the water, hoping to give us the strength to move forward in our lives. In “Rewilding,” expect to see eight paintings and 20 felted sculptures, including protective bindings, vessels and seed pods.

There’s an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. January 7.
