Observe Climate Change Through an Artistic Perspective

Pink Dog Creative has announced a new exhibit, “A Contemporary Response to Our Changing Environment,” a group exhibition of Pink Dog Creative artists, curated by artist Joseph Pearson to be held at the Pink Dog Gallery, 348 Depot St. Asheville NC, 28801 with an opening reception Feb. 3, 5-8 p.m. at the gallery.

The debate around climate change tends to dwell in the realms of science and politics rather than in the arts, yet creative solutions to addressing climate issues are needed.  This exhibition will look at climate change through artists’ perspectives and will share this perspective with the scientists and business leaders attending Climate Con, The Business of Change, by staging an associated exhibition at the Collider, a nonprofit innovation center focused on catalyzing market-driven solutions to climate issues, March 19-23 at the Collider offices on the 4th floor of the Wells Fargo Building, 1 Haywood St. in downtown Asheville.

Jacque Lowe from the Collider said,  “We’re so excited to be connected with the Pink Dog artists and I know that being able to create this visual tie between our two worlds will bring a much-needed connectivity to both the folks in our space everyday, and those visiting for ClimateCon.”

Artists include Joseph A. Pearson, Andrea Kulish, Deanna Chilian, Holly de Saillan, Karen Keil Brown, Lynn Bregman- Blass, Julie Miles, Jennifer Kincaid, Leene Hermann, Ralph Burns, Viola Spells, William Price, Christie Calaycay and Pat Phillips.  The exhibition will run through March 31.

Exhibition hours will be held Monday-Saturday noon to 5 p.m., Feb. 3 – March 31.

Meet the Artists at the Collider from 10 -11 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 9, on the fourth floor of the Wells Fargo building,1 Haywood Street, Suite 401, Asheville, NC 28801.
