After the Fire
February 2 - March 13Free
Round Weather’s second exhibition recognizes fire as central to our earthen experience. “We seem almost a fire dependent/ species like this tree,” writes poet Ed Roberson in “Sequoia Sempervirens,” and our next years promise increasing conflagration born of our natural resources. We must work now toward tomorrow’s recovery. After the Fire is both the title of Sylvia Fein’s painting of a fuming forest and a primary metaphor and/or method connecting Miguel Arzabe’s paper weavings and kite rituals, Ashwini Bhat’s sculptures of weathered ecology, Sarah A. Smith’s corroded gold leaf and endangered spirit animals, Martha Tuttle’s depiction of space dust and galaxy haloes, and Andy Vogt’s drawing with rust, oxidation using sunlight, and salvaged wood.
Proceeds from every artwork sold largely go to Dogwood Alliance, Friends of the Earth, and Indigenous Environmental Network. Each year Round Weather’s advisory board selects three nonprofit organizations to reward for their track record in helping temper the climate crisis.
You may visit in person by appointment only with all safety precautions in place.
