    Gaia Weeps

    Featuring Frederica Armstrong, Isabella La Rocca González, Carolyn Monastra and Kay Westhues

    Dates: November 1 – November 30, 2019
    Events: Opening Reception November 16, 6:00 – 8:00pm

    The work of these four artists pays homage to Gaia*. Kay Westhues’ Well Stories project examines publicly accessed artesian
    wells in Indiana and surrounding states and reminds us of our dependence on the earth. Carolyn Monastra’s The Witness Tree
    project chronicles the effects of climate change around the world. Isabella La Rocca González’ series 
    documents sites of animal agriculture, a leading cause of climate change, deforestation, ocean acidification, habitat destruction,
    loss of biodiversity, and mass species extinction. Federica Armstrong’s 
    In Plain Sight is an exploration of the 23 Superfund
    Sites whose contamination dates back to 1960s-1970s manufacturing in Silicon Valley.
     The intimate beauty of the photographs
    in this exhibition exposes the sad truth of our current environmental crisis.


    * The Greek word Gaia denotes the female deity of earth and also refers to the hypothesis that the living and
    nonliving components of earth function as a single system.
