A RiverArts Salon is a (virtual) place to learn something new, share ideas, explore interesting topics, see and be seen, and have fun.
Tuesdays from 5 - 5:45, on Zoom
What do art and environmental stewardship have in common? They are both powerful ways that we work in and for our communities, express shared values, and help build the future we want to inhabit. In October, RiverArts and ShoreRivers will cocurate a special series of Salons exploring how Conservation, Justice, Family, Harmony are essential tools in our response to the crises of climate, coronavirus, and racial injustice, just as they are essential elements for a life of joy and meaning.
Each Tuesday in October from 5 to 5:45 pm, join our organizations at the RiverArts Salon to celebrate the abundance of good works being done. Be inspired, learn something new, and participate in actions that will benefit our rivers and our community.
Marcy's work is "an exploration into the relationship between the natural world and the human psyche." Carla is known for exhibiting work "focused on the interconnectedness of humans" and the environment. These two artistic powerhouses discuss their work and the importance of using art to talk about the environment and conservation. Members of the Shore Rivers & RiverArts teams join the discussion.
The ShoreRiverArts Action for the week: Don't paddle (or walk) past it. Please commit to picking up any trash you encounter in your travels.
Join ShoreRivers on October 17 for a clean up day at Carpenter Park in the Washington Park neighborhood of Chestertown.
A movement only becomes a movement of substance, size, and power when the artists say 'we want to add our voice.'
