16. “Claire Sherman: New Pangaea” at DC Moore Gallery

Claire Sherman’s newest landscape paintings are as lush as her earlier works, but there’s also a sense of calamity that’s starting to creep in. The title of the show, “New Pangaea,” comes from the writings of Elizabeth Kolbert, who has focused on the environmental repercussions of global trade, which is rapidly “bringing all of the world’s flora and fauna together.” In Sherman’s paintings, plant life is no longer endemic to any one region; instead, as curator Melissa Messina writes, it’s at “every place at once or no place at all.”
