One Planet. One Home. A Juried Exhibition @ KLG
Thursday, May 4 - Sunday, May 28 • Opening Reception, Friday, May 12, 4-7PM
Why is climate change still up for debate? Since November 2016, it has felt like so much of what we love is under attack. Among its many plans, the current administration is working to dismantle the EPA by 2018. Kehler Liddell Gallery's One Planet. One Home. confronts the issues of climate change and the environmental crisis with a juried exhibition of 29 artists on view from Thursday, May 4 - Sunday, May 28. An Opening Reception will be held the first night of Westville's Artwalk, Friday, May 12 from 4-7PM.
One Planet. One Home. is a group show for KLG members – who have all been juried into membership – and includes a juried component with a number of guest artists from the New Haven region and beyond.
Participants include: Liz Antle-O’Donnell, Marsha Borden, Amy Browning, Frank Bruckmann, Ari Burling, David Chorney, Julia Coash, Rod Cook, Penrhyn Cook, Phyllis Crowley, Tom Edwards, Joe Fekieta, Brian Flinn, Julie Fraenkel, Molly Gambardella, Joan Jacobson-Zamore, Katie Jurkiewicz, Wayne King, Zoe Matthiessen, Roy Money, Hilary Opperman, Hank Paper, Hannah Rotstein, Alan Shulik, Mark St. Mary, William Thompson, Elizabeth Tranzillo, Gar Waterman, Robert Wilton, and Marjorie Wolfe.
As part of this thought-provoking exhibition, KLG will host a panel discussion and community conversation on Saturday, May 13 at 3PM, during Westville's annual Artwalk, addressing the question: “What Can I Do to Fight Climate Change?” This discussion is moderated by Semi Semi-Dikoko and is one in a series of conversations titled, Art in Community 20|20. Panelists TBA. (Created in partnership with The ArtEcon Initiative and made possible with support from the Mayor's Community Arts Grants Program.)
