Ruby Fridays

The Enviro-Art Gallery was created three years ago in order to better engage and inform the community on the beauty and struggles of our natural world. By showcasing a variety of works that bring attention to local and global environmental issues, serene natural spaces, and human interactions (both positive and negative) with Mother Earth, the gallery effectively uses art as a message and a call to action for conservation and planetary protection.

As a part of the third annual presentation of The Enviro-Art Gallery, the curator, Cameron Oglesby, will speak about the gallery's development and its impact on the community and on herself. She will also discuss the significance of interdisciplinary forms of communication and activism in raising environmental awareness.
