Last year, I stopped by this beautiful space in Oakland, CA, and admired both the tension-filled graceful sculptures by John Ruszel and Joanne Hashitani‘s delicate, intricate wall pieces.
This coming Thursday…

We are experiencing a shift in the environment; our weather patterns are changing, global temperatures are climbing, our oceans are acidifying, and our sea levels are rising. At this critical moment, these artists have taken a moment to not only comment on a wide spectrum of personal concerns for the environment, but also provoke deeper thought regarding the effect we are having, and allow us this opportunity to take pause, consider our actions – actions that profoundly shape our future – and this shared global place we call home.
I’m going to be there for the artist’s talk, which is Saturday August 10th, 2-3:30. Please come by if you’re in the area!
