I am one of three artists who’s work will be shown at the conference for Plastic in The Mediterranean. This event is organized by the Prince Albert ll of Monaco Foundation, Surfrider Foundation Europe, Tara Expeditions and the Mava Foundation. The conference will be focused on exploring solutions that can reduce or end the plastic waste that is in the Mediterranean and impacting marine life.
The show will also feature artist and photographer Gregg Segal’s images from his powerful series 7 days of Garbage as well as selected pieces from artist and photographer Alain Delorme’s poetic series of plastic clouds that mimic the dance of wild starlings, Murmurations. It is so exciting to show along side them!
The conference will be held in Monaco on March 10 and March 11. The show will be on display for two months, starting March 10th. at the Gallerie des Pecheurs, Monaco

EMERGENCY ART/SPACE 164 IS PLEASE TO ANNOUNCE THE CURRENT SHOW BY ARTIST TESS FELIX
Stinson Beach, California artist Tess Felix weaves environmental elements into classic portraiture in the current Emergency Art and Space 164 exhibition, on view through March 2015.
At first look the art is beyond abstract but at closer observation this clever artist takes a realistic and literal approach to the genre of portraiture that is the centerpiece of this show. Ms. Felix, who has a background in the theatre and opera, is provocative in her usage of plastics and she goes back to her roots in opera by depicting the main character from Puccini’s “Madam Butterfly.”
Beyond the faces created by the artist is a focus on the humanity of the subjects. The works depict a culture cluttered with plastics, excess and waste, but also allows beauty, humor with curiosity, and conversation. The portraits are colorful, poignant, and have been given humanizing souls that shows juxtaposition between the subject matter and the plastic materials used to create them.
