October 26 – November 13, 2022
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 29, 1 – 3 pm | Performance: 1:30 pm
With great concern over the environmental problem on our planet, the destruction of our old growth forests, the pollution in our waters and light pollution, the Our Three Worlds exhibition aims to create awareness of our societal obligation to the planet.
As an artist, I want to reach out with deep concern to all those still not convinced that our actions will determine the future of our planet. Our generation has the obligation to create the conditions to guarantee the healthy survival of our planet for future generations. The artworks created for this exhibition include or represent nature in its simplest form but with the great complexity of our dependence on the vigorous conditions of the ecosystem.
I accept the difficult environmental conditions of our planet as a fact and assume the responsibility of working as part of a societal team to defend the world’s most important asset, the planet itself.Cesar Forero
