Three new art exhibits focused on our environment and climate change will open April 14 with a reception at Nurture Nature Center.
Risky Beauty: Aesthetics and Climate Change , curated by Dr. Cynthia Haveson Veloric, will showcase artwork in different media that draws in viewers with its sensual beauty, while stimulating awareness and changing perceptions. The exhibition will challenge viewers to consider how their aesthetic experience of nature might change in light of the scientific consensus about the validity of the climate crisis, the known societal forces that hasten environmental degradation, and the impact of climate change in their personal environments. Works by Diane Burko, Maureen Drdak, Stacy Levy, Deirdre Murphy, Amie Potsic, Hiro Sakaguchi and Chantal Westby are included.
The 5 x 5 Show: Water & Works will feature photography by Richard Begbie, drawings and prints by Pat Delluva, paintings by James A. Depietro, mosaics by Barbara Kozero, and Jacqueline Meyerson. The 5 x 5 Show closes on June 4.
Up Down, All Around will feature panoramic and vertical photographic scrolls by Jamie Cabreza, who teaches at Lafayette College and manages Larry Fink’s studio.
The opening reception will be Friday, April 14, 6 – 9 pm. Music will be provided by The Allan Meyerson Trio. Risky Beauty: Aesthetics and Climate Change and Up Down, All Around will both close June 25.
