What a delight to attend the opening reception of the i3C exhibit at the gallery CAA@Canal. As stated in the press release of the Cambridge Art Association, “The Cambridge Art Association (CAA) is pleased to announce Inspiring Change for the Climate Crisis (i3C) at CAA @ Canal, a Members Curatorial Exhibit, curated by artist and scientist Adriana G. Prat and including artists from the i3C (inspiring Change for the Climate Crisis) group.”

“This exhibit is part of our new Members’ Curatorial Series, an annual opportunity for members of the CAA to curate an exhibit of three or more artists. The exhibit opens on April 3rd, kicking-off a one-year partnership with BioMed Realty, at a new gallery space, CAA @ Canal, located at 650 E. Kendall Street, in the heart of Kendall Square’s Canal District. The exhibit will remain on view through May 12th, 2023.”

Free and open to the public, the exhibit presents works by 21 artists exploring environmental themes. I am honored and humbled to be among the artists. I hope you have the opportunity to view these incredibly imaginative and passionate works. Also there are other associated activities including:

  • “Climate AND Change”: Virtual presentation from expert climate scientist Rachel Licker from the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) – Thursday April 27th, 6-7 pm. This talk will review both the latest science on climate change and its causes and explore the interplay between individual actions and systemic changes that could get us where we need to be.
  • Virtual presentation from i3C Artist Yulia Shtern – Tuesday May 2nd, 6-7 pm. The talk covers the journey of materials through global recycling systems, exposing their structural deficiencies hidden from the public’s awareness. It also talks about international artists whose primary art-making medium is up-cycled materials, including some of the i3C artists.
  • Closing Reception: Fri May 12th, 5-7 pm – At the Gallery

On view until February 25th, don’t miss the opportunity to experience the i3c Group Artists Exhibit, Inspiring Change for the Climate Crisis, at Brickbottom Gallery Somerville. A truly inspiring exhibit. During the opening reception my favorite part, aside from connecting and reconnecting with artist friends, was watching children engage with the range of media, from fiber arts to photography to paintings and more. https://brickbottom.org/exhibitions-current-upcoming/

If you haven’t had a chance to view the group exhibit Meditations on Climate Crisis at the honeyjones gallery in Cambridge, MA you still have time. It is a beautifully curated show featuring the works of very talented and passionate artists.

The gallery is an airy yet intimate space and located in a very artsy neighborhood of Cambridge near little antique shops and eateries. One could very well make a nice afternoon of it with friends and family visiting the exhibit and then exploring the neighborhood in its autumn glory.

Closing reception is Sunday November 27th 2-4pm. Hope to see you there!

the completed trough

Nope, that is not the opening to one of my fairly gentle political posts. Just breathe. Those are the words I repeat to myself the night before I attempt to set up my first installation for the exhibit Peace: Cutting through Turmoil. My contribution to the show I guess I can say is a three dimensional representation of my artistic and emotional experiences after chancing upon 1930’s Federal Writers’ Project slave narratives in the public library, and then later reading more narratives online. It was a short paragraph that set me on this path, a recount of childhood memories of eating from a trough with a mussel shell. Shells pulled from the branches …


What I am creating is ephemeral. Paper, prints, words produced to physically be on display for a little less than a month. A contribution that I think will be part of a powerful whole when viewed in the company of the works by the other participants who have esteemed careers in the arts. I feel a bit like the new kid on the block. A little scary but freeing too.


It will be an assemblage of pieces and parts, words and images, some culled from nature, some acquired collaboratively with the aid of friends. The least ephemeral of the whole is the trough. While he did let me hold a chisel or two, it was Steve who carved the trough for me using a fallen tree, and a pivotal tool, both shared by friends.



Shared by friends. No matter what happens with this project it has been a wonderful collaborative effort. I was even able to involve one of my littlest friends, aged 9 and going on 21, who agreed to hold a mussel shell for me.


Hmmm. What else is there to say? Before this night is done, I have a few more shells to drill holes in and string, and I still need to discuss with Steve how to hang … oops, I can’t tell you what I intend to hang or from what. At least not yet. Meanwhile, I just breathe. 🙂

The Beebe Estate is a historic house located at 235 W. Foster Street in Melrose, MA.  A lovely example of Greek Revival architecture built in 1828 as a home by William Foster, it is now an arts and cultural center. It is my pleasure to have three framed photographs appearing in Nature: Our Most Precious Resources, an arts exhibit hosted at the estate this September by the Friends of the Middlesex Fells.
