Forty-four artists will show artworks in the multi-media, multi-location exhibition, “Address: Earth: Art Expo 2022,” Curated by Bibiana Huang Matheis. The exhibition features artists affiliated with the Inspiration Artist Group International, united under a common theme as a part of the Hudson Valley-wide exhibition “Address Earth: Art Expo 2022.” The first in-person exhibition since the onset of Covid-19, Address Earth features a collection of voices from dozens of artists who celebrate the planet earth and use art to address the critical global issues that affect the environment. It also celebrates varied aspects of our planet that are shared by everyone. Artists will address ecology, sustainability, climate change, endangered species, clean water, deforestation, and humanity, recognizing our common interests and shared well-being which is vital at this critical juncture in the history of this planet that we call Home.
