WAG explored the story of Rockland Center for the Arts back in May 2017, when the West Nyack-based organization was celebrating its 70th anniversary.
This spring, RoCA will spotlight issues related to the environment with a trio of exhibitions, “The Tipping Point: Artists Address Climate Change,” “Aqueous Remains” and “Quotidian Metamorphosis,” as well as a panel discussion.
Here’s a description of the shows, from advance materials:
“These compelling exhibitions explore the relationship between nature and humanity, capturing the environmental impacts of human resources. It is not just about climate change but also a humanitarian issue. Artists present work that first appears beautiful but, ultimately, reveals an ugly truth underneath of damage, transmutation and the decomposed. These exhibits offer a fresh perspective on critical environmental issues and exemplifies our capacity to understand, adapt and create in the face of danger.”
The exhibitions will open March 25, with a reception scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m., and continue through May 25. The panel discussion, “The Tipping Point: Advancing Climate Change Communication & Expression,” set for 7 p.m. May 12.
Admission is free to both the exhibitions and panel discussion. RoCA is at 27 S. Greenbush Road.
