I am delighted to participate in:
An International Group Exhibition
Opening: July 14th, 6-9pm – September 30th
An exhibition shedding light on the crisis of forest fires across the globe. Artists respond to the forest fires by developing work that focuses on global warming, resource destruction, property damage, loss of life, wilderness protection, sustainability, political issues, fire mitigation, first responders, or broadly conceptual work dealing with the interpretation of “engulfed”.
