Activists, politicians, and scientists promote being green and sustainable, and argue about fracking and climate change, 440 Gallery hosted Earth, a group exhibition for artists to present their side of the story. A vast landscape, the fragile environment, a speck in the universe or an intimate dance between insects: however you see it, it is our home, and the theme of the summer group show.

Earth explored the shifting nature of terrain - its current state and possible future ones. The thirteen artists and their artwork selected for this show raised questions, made provocative statements, and let you reach your own conclusions. The artists were: Chris Arabadjis, Eric Banks, Kim Carlino, Ernest Concepcion, Lisa Cooperman, Aimee Hertog, Leah Oates, Harry Newman, Silvana Ravena, Gregg Rosen, Norman Sarachek , Jeanne Marie Wasilik, Ejay Weiss.
