The Online Exhibition of The Ground Upon Which We Stand is OPEN Click HERE to visit the online gallery and shop The Ground Upon Which We Stand is a regional juried exhibition sponsored by the Northern California Women's Caucus for Art (NCWCA) in collaboration with the Abrams Claghorn Gallery. Seventy-eight artists speak out about the sacredness of the land and the importance of standing your ground in this era of climate change and a global health crisis. With works represented in all media, the exhibition offers messages to and from the planet through the artists’ responses to nature, environmental pressures, society and the fate of our only home, Planet Earth. These artworks engage on multiple levels – wonder, worry, hopefulness, activism. Echoing Greta Thunberg’s call to action, the exhibition stresses that there is no plan B nor planet B. The Ground Upon Which We Stand is more relevant than ever because the well being of our planet is intricately interwoven with our own. The exhibition also shines a spotlight on women's identities and their embodied experiences with planet Earth. Stay tuned for . . . * Environmentally Sound: Formerly a live performance and panel event scheduled for April 18, the event will now be transformed into an online experience in which special guests will respond to the exhibition artwork through poetry, song, science, and computer animation. Date TBD. * A catalog of The Ground Upon Which We Stand with a forward by Laurie Rich, Executive Director, David Brower Center, will be available for purchase late-April.
