what is ecoartspace?

ecoartspace has served as a platform for artists addressing environmental issues since 1999. Patricia Watts and Amy Lipton have curated over 60 art and ecology exhibitions combined, and have organized, as well as participated in, over 100 ecoart programs and events. Starting 2020, Watts decided to transition to a membership-based organization. Students, artists, advocates, professionals, galleries and institutions are invited to join who are concerned about the natural world. Together, we as a community can both imagine and help make real, a healthy future.

As an environmental artist and researcher, I want to experience how the act of slowing down might reframe my creative process and current views. Given the urgency we face in connection with climate change and the migratory phenomenon, I also wanted to find ways to become better sensitized to atmospheric shifts and materials underfoot while witnessing ongoing adaptation.

The development of Walking Libraries as an archiving concept and movement practice was a way for me to confront my own layers of mental stasis, and in turn, come into contact with my surroundings in ways that might reveal solutions for greater resiliency and connectedness moving forward.

upcoming events

The Great Pause ZOOM dialogues

On March 26 we met with almost 50 members to discuss some of the positive and negative events arising, in artists studio practice and in the environment, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We met again on April 9, and May 20 with special guest author and activist Ashley Dawson, and June 12 for a dialogue on TREES.

NEW: TREE TALK dialogues will be held on the last Thursday of every month at 11am MDT. Co-sponsored by the Joshua Tree Center for Photographic Arts. Moderated by Sant Khalsa.
