GOING, GOING, GONE! This will be your final chance to join Artlery160 at this location before we hit the road with our current showcase. On this occasion, we invite guest speaker Ramona Peters followed by live music, a silent auction, refreshments, and Boston's last opportunity to view "RADAR" - a 32-piece showcase of artists and their visual interpretations of climate change.
Please join Artlery and the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) in welcoming guest speaker Ramona (Nosapocket) Peters - a renowned indigenous activist and member of the Bear Clan Mashpee Wampanoag tribe. Not only is Peters the founder of the Native Land Conservancy (the first Native-run conservancy east of the Mississippi River) but also an: artist, yogi, expert in historic preservation, Director of NAGPRA (Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act), and an invaluable part of the Wampanoag Woman’s Medicine Society. Peters' talk will highlight the contributions of Wampanoag women leadership in preserving the tribe’s cultural heritage throughout the Cape Code area. A Q&A style dialogue will be open during the second half of the lecture.
Attendees will also be able to admire the works of ¨RADAR” throughout the event. This exhibition is a visual interpretation of the many dimensions of climate change. It is a directive plea symbolizing reflective-mourning and a visceral offering of hope. Juried by Artlery160 Director, Tameka Eastman-Coburn with support by David Thomson (owner), this exhibition showcases twenty-eight artists from NAWA. Ten percent of sale proceeds from this exhibition will be donated to the Peters' Native Land Conservancy. Artists include:
Kim Alemian, Frances Andahazy, Lorrie Berry, Dale Sherman Blodget, Donna Caselden, Karen Cass, Jennifer Jean Costello, Rosalie Cuticchia, Mary Davidson, Terry Del Percio, Karen Fitzgerald, Barbara Fletcher, Christine Frisbee, Anne Harney, Ingrid Johnson, Linda Pearlman Karlsberg, Sandee Johnson, Cindy Journey, Mary V. Judge, Carolyn Latanision, Bonita LeFlore, Sinikka Nogelo, Marsha Odabashian, Ellen Rolli, Karen Rovner, Pamela Tarbell, Robin Thornhill, and Heidi Caswell Zander.
