      A Critical Balance Art Exhibition

      Scientists estimate that 150-200 species of plant, insect, bird, and mammal become extinct every 24 hours. This is nearly 1,000 times the “natural” rate. Many biologists say this is greater than anything the world has experienced since the vanishing of the dinosaurs nearly 65 million years ago. Today many of the creatures that are familiar to us are at a critical balancing point. They might not be here for future generations to experience.

      Eight New England artists have gathered to paint and exhibit a selection of species that are listed as endangered on the International Union for the Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) red list. As artists that have a dedication to the natural world, they have a unique opportunity to share their observations and use their art to convey both the beauty of these endangered species and the need to protect them. Several of the pieces focus on Vermont species. The intent of this exhibit is to use art to inspire and educate in ways that will reach beyond statistics, policy, and politics.

      Participating artists:
      Gabriel Tempesta, Vermont
      Linda Mirabile, Vermont
      Heidi Broner, Vermont
      Shearon Murphy, Maine
