On the Edge: Living the Anthropocene
Artwork on the impacts of the climate crisis by Ann Chadwick Reid and Natalie Niblack
October 7 @ 8:00 am – November 11 @ 5:00 pm EDT
GAP member Ann Chadwick Reid and fellow Bow, Washington, artist Natalie Niblack have a duet show during this month at Grants Pass Museum of Art, Grants Pass, Oregon.
Kicked off by a Climate Change Panel with the artists and also Alan Journet, co-founder and now co-facilitator of Southern Oregon Climate Action Now on Saturday Oct. 7, 2-4pm, at Grants Pass Museum. This is the fourth venue to exhibit this show about the impacts of the climate crisis. Although this exhibition focuses on issues in the Pacific Northwest, the information and dialogue pertain to regions across the country that recognize the ever-evolving challenges to our communities.
Using traditional media of cut paper, painting and drawings, both artists create work that celebrates the social and environmental complexity of this landscape while questioning its survivability as climate change inevitably and perhaps irrevocably alters the world around us.
Both artists live and work in Skagit Valley, a rural, agricultural community framed by the Cascade Mountains to the East and the Salish Sea to the west. This once pristine landscape faces environmental challenges which inspire the imagery and content of their artwork. It is the intent of the artists to draw the viewer into the work by identifying the beauty that is inherent in both the destruction of and revelation of nature.
These artists create works that call upon viewers to recognize the far-reaching threats of climate change and participate in preventing the decline of our natural environment.
