You are invited to participate in Paradise [not yet] Lost,
a community exhibit about environmental issues, climate change,
and the places we love and want to take care of.
Are you passionate about renewable energy, recycling, preserving land or climate justice? Are there places (near and far) that you love that need care and protection? We invite you to be part of a community dialogue through art: visual, written, performed, etc. All work that relates to the theme will be included. (Some size restrictions possible. Please call if your piece is larger that 3′ in any direction.)
Participation is free and open to all ages and experience!
No prior art or exhibit experience necessary.
Deadline for submissions: January 31, 2015
Saturday, February 7, 6pm to 8pm
Performances at 7pm
Show runs through March 31, 2015. Pick up work on April 1, 2 or 3.
For this exhibit, we also invite you to consider
Art as Social Practice:
art as a series of intentional actions
that you do and document,
do and reflect on,
do and do and do,
for whatever transformation
it brings about in yourself
and the world around you.
You can share documentation, images and reflections related to your practice or action[s] in the exhibit, or as a performance at the opening reception. We will also have a Wall of Intentions that you can add to at the opening or during the exhibit.
You can incubate ideas for actions at our January 28 Art For A Change program!
Questions? or to schedule a performance: Please call (413) 625-2782.
