The artist Tatana Kellner is passionately against Hydro-fracturing or Fracking. We were inspired by her installation "Poisoned Well", a depiction of what Fracking does to drinking water, to bring together works that address our environmental concerns. We received more than 60 submissions and we have selected 20 artists who work in various mediums. This exhibition highlights the works that bring forth pressing issues about our environment.

Stephanie Bell, Adriana Farmiga, Dave Hebb, Robin Holland, Sue E. Horowitz, Roman Hrab, Lynn Itzkowitz Tatana Kellner, Maria Mattos, Matthias Neumann & Natalia Roumelioti, Gina Occhiogrosso, Caitlin Parker, Jaanika Peerna, Richard A.
