Denise Bibro Fine Art is pleased to host the Women's Caucus for Art exhibition Petroleum Paradox: For Better or For Worse? \, juried by Eleanor Heartney\, on view May 24 through June 23\, 20 12.

\n

Co-President for New York WCA\, Marcia Annenberg\, states: "thi s exhibit seeks to raise awareness of the imminent danger of uncontrolled c limate change\, caused by an excessive dependency on fossil fuels... It is our generation that has been called to this task.”

\n

To paraphrase El eanor Heartney\, “… the thoughtful works that comprise this exhibit present questions\, such as ‘How do we balance economic development\, environmenta l protection\, and geopolitical stability in an ever more precarious world? What are we willing to give up today to avoid catastrophe tomorrow? Where should we commit our resources? How should we define our social and economi c priorities?’”

\n

The variety of perspectives of the artists involved employ photography\, video\, painting\, and sculpture. These artists reinf orce the paradox at the center of our environmental predicament. Heartney n otes\, human creativity and innovation are at the root of our difficulties\ , but they are also the source of our potential salvation.
