"Unraveling & Turning:" A Climate Change Art Exhibit

"Unraveling & Turning:" A Climate Change Art Exhibit
Fri, 06/14/2013 - 12:00pm
Goddard Art Gallery at 54 Main Street, Montpelier, VT 05602

 

Artists from across Vermont and beyond share their work relating to climate change in this exhibit presented as part of 350 Vermont's Climate Change Arts Festival.

As the planet has been mired in fire and drought with Arctic ice rapidly shrinking and high temperature records on all continents, it’s time for a creative conversation about the challenges, fears, and opportunities of climate change. The discussion of climate change must be more than a fruitless exchange between scientists, lobbyists, corporations, and politicians. Artists have a critical role to play in shifting the dialogue about climate change to one that is understood on an emotional and spiritual level. Through art, we can identify and strengthen the emotional resilience of each community.

Included in this exhibit are artists Blair Rayfield Borax, Galen Cheney, Kevyn Cundiff, Cami Davis, Goddard College MFAIA student Joshua DeMello, David Hurwitz, Arthur Hynes, Sally Linder, Riki Moss, Mia Rubow, Anne Sarka, Nancy Taplin, Goddard College alumna Janet van Fleet (MA '95), Goddard College MFAIA Program Director Ruth Wallen, and Shelley Warren.

The show includes paintings, sculpture, and installations and has been curated by Peter Nielsen and Alison Goodwin.

Goddard Art Gallery at 54 Main, MONTPELIER hours are: Wednesdays - Thursdays 12-5 pm; Fridays & Saturdays, 12-7 pm.
