The Extinction Event is an art exhibit and poetry reading that raises alarm for the drastic changes in our climate which is causing the current crisis for all species on the planet. This year’s All Species art show sponsored by Spindleworks will call attention to the urgency of protecting life on our planet. The Extinction Event is meant to draw attention to our living planet both to celebrate, and to raise awareness of the diversity of species, all of which are affected by our actions and inactions. Join us on August 11th for The Extinction Event Reading at Frontier 5:30pm hosted by Gary Lawless including community poets and Spindleworks artists. Free with suggested donation at the door to benefit Maine Audubon. Listen to our collective voices as we share words that are meant to raise awareness on the precious world we live in and the need to protect it.
This year’s artwork focuses on the threat facing all wildlife and how our actions are necessary to protect the planet. We welcome diversity of artistic expression to reflect the importance of this theme. This will be the seventh exhibit in the series, which has drawn artists from across Maine and across the country. A portion of the sales from this year’s exhibit will go to Maine Audubon and will help fund their efforts to protect Maine’s wildlife. 30% from each art sale will be donated to this vital organization dedicated to protecting our planet.
