The Pacific Region Women's Caucus for Art presents "Blue Planet," a national juried eco-art exhibition. "Blue Planet" examines and explores social, political and economic issues related to water. Given that water covers 70% of our "Blue Planet," this exhibition is an opportunity to re-envision, reclaim, remediate and restore our relationships with this most precious resource. Southern California eco-artist and juror, Kim Abeles, selected 56 artists, whose works range from installation and video to traditional media.
Public showing from Jun 19 - 26.
Kim Abeles has received fellowships from J. Paul Getty Trust Fund for the Visual Arts, Pollack-Krasner Foundation, and others. Abeles has consistently produced artwork about the environment. In 1987, she invented a method to create images from the smog in the air, and "Smog Collectors" brought her work to national and international attention.
