ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT: Stress, Hope & Transformation

July 18 – September 7, 2019

Opening Reception; Thursday July 18, 5:30 – 8:00pm

Global warming, overpopulation, extinction of species, and dwindling natural resources are all stress factors facing the Earth, and humanity today.

What do we as artists have to share about this most relevant and challenging subject?

Environmental Impact is a curated exhibition with the goals of presenting a diversity of views and concerns for the environment, to engage viewers aesthetically and emotionally by delving deeper into this most relevant and challenging subject.

This exhibit will be defined by the quality, creativity, and diversity of ideas introduced by the participating artists. We anticipate that there will be artists presenting ideas that are positive and transformational and there are artists who will illustrate the consequences of human industry and activity.
