Art Roots Here , postcard from the show
It’s my privilege to have been selected to bring together a collection of artworks by a group of people who are as interested and committed to the renewal of our environment and spiritual balance as I am. The urban garden site that I manage on the Emeryville/Oakland border and that we’re utilizing for our show is a great emblem of this commitment. Until just a few years ago the location of “Big Daddy’s Complete Rejuvenating Community Garden” was a broken down service station with an auto-detailing business, as much a symbol of an industrial past as today it is a symbol of recycling and creative re-use.
The works produced by Laney College’s Eco-Art class students combine a central focus with a variety of individual perspectives, many keying on the garden and its growth, many a celebration of organic materials and forms. All share a dedication to improving the health of our planet and quality of our lives.
