Collective Voices: Artful Activists
Artist or Activist? Three accomplished Midcoast artists share stories about their passion to address the struggles of our social and physical environment and how they use and make art to care for the planet. Krisanne Baker an Ecological Art Activist, her multi-media sculptures, drawings, and digital media works are specifically concerned with the sustainability of water quality, availability, and the rights of all creatures on this water planet. Sarah Baldwin of Bella Luna Toys practices activism through screening suppliers for eco-friendly materials, ethical production, seeking out fair trade toys, ensuring fair wages and healthy working conditions for workers. Kim Bernard shows her sculpture, installations and encaustic works nationally and has been invited to participate in many exhibits.
