I have these three paintings in the exhibition
Inauguration Nation: Artists Respond to the New Administration
Inauguration Day Open House, January 20, 11am - 4pm
Opening Reception, January 21, 3pm - 6pm
The show is about what artists would like to say to the new administration - mine address climate change and renewable energy. People often approve of the concept of renewable energy sources in the general, but in the specific they complain about the sound, the appearance, the ruining of the view or the "feel" of the countryside. One of these people is our own future president, Donald Trump who, in his classic way of mixing his business with the country's, encouraged officials in Britain to fight wind turbines off the coast of his Scottish golf course because it would "spoil the beautiful countryside" (http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-38070395). Our future president also has expressed his doubts about climate change (exhibited by his tweet about it being a Chinese hoax and his nomination of climate change denier Scott Pruitt to head the EPA) and his support for bringing back coal highlight his non-support of the expansion of renewable energy.
25% of each work sold in the show will go to a non-profit of the artist's choosing. Mine will go to the Environmental Defense Fund.
