Women’s Caucus for Art of GA Member Exhibit
Our WCAGA President, Sally Eppstein, has a special place in her heart and art for our environment and more specifically the urban environment. Her program, TreeSpeak, was begun with this focus in mind.
Our Nature…”ours” to enjoy, care about and celebrate in our work. Some of us can’t resist making work that is inspired by our surroundings, by images that remind all who see our work that this is a part of our world to be treasured and sustained. But, the urban issues extend beyond the actual physical plants, birds, animals, insects and flowers…it reaches into our psyche. We find ourselves feeling awed, inspired, calmed, excited and even protective of this world that sustains our life. Some artists create work that speaks to this inspiration. There is also the back story to our urban environment. Some artists bravely ask, ”What happens when we neglect, reject or ignore its importance?”
Some artists' work not only deals with the positive aspects of our physical world, it also addresses what happens when it is disregarded. Some work is made to warn of the dangers of ignoring our dependence in favor of money, agendas and ‘progress’. Maybe it is part of ‘our nature’ as artists to bring this message whenever we are able. The 2017 WCAGA Member Exhibit offers us an opportunity to show our own vision…Our own Nature.
