#CoolArt: Haven Gallery presents 'Mission Blue' Group Art Exhibition

Haven Gallery presents 'Mission Blue', a group art exhibition of paintings and drawings curated by Christina Ridgeway in support of Sylvia Earle Alliance’s Mission Blue organization.

Mission Blue is dedicated to raising awareness and garnering public support towards our planet’s oceans through means of education and the creation of 'Hope Spots'. 'Hope Spots' are areas in the ocean that become protected by the organization to help the ocean alleviate the negative impacts of humanity on the indigenous species and ecological systems of all residing aquatic life.

In addition to sharing the organization’s objective visually through art, the exhibition will also be contributing towards the creation of a Hope Spot by donating a percentage of all art sales to the organization.

Exhibiting artists include: Lioba Brückner, Erich J Moffitt, Jel Ena, Sarah Joncas, Hannah Yata, Erica Calardo, Tom Bagshaw, Jana Brike, Melissa Hartley, Adam Oehlers, Christina Ridgeway, Annie Stegg Gerard, Brianna Angelakis, Nom Kinnear King, Tammy Wampler, Ania Tomicka, June Leeloo, Amy Katherine Minchew, Helice Wen, Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Josie Morway and Lea Barozzi.

The opening reception is Saturday October 29 from 6-8pm at the Haven Gallery, 155 Main Street, Carriage House Square, Northport, NY 11768, and will be on display until November 27.
