FALLBROOK – An innovative and free art exhibit, Ecology Monochromatic, hosted by the Friends of the Fallbrook Library, will open Sept. 5 and will run through Nov. 2.
Curated by artist Daniel Marquez, the exhibit is an invitation to the public to consider “ecology as the network that interactively connects all life on Earth.”
In the language of art, this is a call for the expression and focus on the conservation and protection of the planet. In their own style, each artist captures this subject and the challenge to use a monochromatic palette for this exhibition. The Mexico/USA collaboration that has always existed emphasizes these different experiences by exhibiting this theme that inspires awareness and care of the artists on either side of the border and their love for the earth.
Spectators can acquire original art at affordable prices with this format of banners. Less material in the creation of art and the packaging for transportation is used, causing less waste for the planet. In the climate that exists today because of change in temperatures, global warming, pandemia, war and political conflict, people live with fear. The antidote to this is art that inspires reflection and perhaps action.
The artists for the exhibit come from various regions including the border areas of Baja California and Ciudad Juarez Chihuahua. In addition to the art in the library’s Community room, sculptures by Rude Calderon and Pedro R. Martinez will be displayed on the library’s Reading Patio.
Join the artists at a special reception Friday, Oct. 6 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Music and light refreshments will be provided. The free event is open to everyone. The Fallbrook Library is located at 124 S. Mission Rd.
