Storefront Art Projects in Watertown presents: Upsurge, too

Mon, Sep 20 8:00 am - Sat, Nov 27 8:00 pm

Storefront Art Projects

From Upsurge The Environmental Show at the PEG Center for Art and Activism in Newburyport, MA, Storefront Art Projects in Watertown presents: Upsurge, too with: Ruth Brownstein, Anne Cummings, Sarah Haskell, Michelle Lougee and Rebecca McGee Tuck 

Upsurge, too features five regional multimedia artists. People across the globe produce over 300 million tons of plastic a year. Half of this plastic is used only once and then heads for the world’s oceans.  Rebecca McGee Tuck collects plastic at the beach for her lyrical abstract compositions.  Michelle Lougee crochets sea caretures from single use plastic and in this show we have a bulbous tapestry made from grocery bag. Ruth Brownstein creates dramatic mixed media images on paper of climate nuclear and glacial disasters.  Sarah Haskell weaves a sinking house and a drowning man in large hand-dyed and embroidered panels. And Anne Cummings’ landscapes collaged from Vermont litter hung in Bernie Sanders’ DC office during his presidential campaign. In  Upsurge,too  there are some formal works and some treasures made from trash. This work is about climate change, impermanence, loss, beauty, and the harm we humans are causing our planet.
