Eco Artists Dialog (WEAD) is a nonprofit group formed to lift up
and support art that focuses on environmental and social justice
issues. Their goals are to provide relevant information to artists,
curators, writers, art administrators, educators, and others about
these concerns, as well as to facilitate international networking.
In the title of their exhibit, Feat to Fire: Celebrating 100
Years of Women's Suffrage, WEAD celebrates the history and
achievements of women raising their voices and concerns, a mission
that group members continue 100 years later, as they focus on ecological
and social justice content in their art.
In support of the
group's eco art focus, WEAD is holding a workshop on Sunday, Jan
26, from 1:30 to 4:00 pm. The workshop, "Reclaimed Paper Collage,"
will include instruction on materials, tools, and techniques, as
well as discussion of composition and the placement of visual elements
in a work of art. The artist instructors are longtime environmental
artists Carrie Blanche and Michelle Echenique, both WEAD board members.
The cost is $25, and you can register on Eventbrite.com.
Sanchez Art Center
is located at 1220 Linda Mar Blvd in Pacifica, about a mile east
of Highway 1. Following opening night, galleries are open Friday,
Saturday, and Sunday, 1–5 pm, and by appointment, through Feb 9.
