“There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.” – Carl Sagan

In honor of Earth Day, Urban Arts Gallery presents “Pale Blue Dot”, an exhibit of local art celebrating our wondrous home planet. This talented group of local artists has created a collection of work that showcases the beauty of nature, as well as pieces made from found objects and recycled materials. This evocative exhibit is designed to uplift, inspire, and remind us of our all-important relationship with our planet and our environment.

Featured artists include: Alice Bain Toler, Brian Hennesy, Brooke Neilsen, Cathy Cash, Chelsea Ekberg, Christina Levi, Emily Nicolosi, James Joel Holmes, John Larsen, Julie Fesko-Penman, Justin Moore, Kurt Beswick, Paola F. Bidinelli Giusti, Sarah Larsen, Sarina Villareal, Steve Stones, Thomas Burdett, and Todd Powelson.

The exhibit will hang from April 2nd to 28th, with a gallery stroll reception on April 19th from 6-9pm. Admission is free and open to the public.
