Don’t let the ominous forecast keep you from celebrating Earth Day this Friday — consider ringing it in indoors. You read correctly – indoors. Project 4  Gallery will commemorate Earth Day and, fittingly, the end to its run of “GREEN WORKS,” an exhibit highlighting the convergence of man-made objects and nature, with a panel discussion of green experts and entrepreneurs this Friday at 6:30 pm.

“GREEN WORKS” features artists Heidi Fowler, Sayaka Ganz, Julia Anne Goodman and Duncan Johnson who, according to Project 4, “remove paint from their palette and look to the recycling bin for their medium and inspiration.” Fowler, Ganz, Goodman and Johnson use man-made and found objects like bottle caps, plastic utensils, wood carved from construction sites, junk mail (to name a few) to “create extraordinary pieces that capture the grace and beauty of the natural world.”

Avid recyclers, environmentalists, and creative minds alike — head down to Project 4 between 6:30 and 9:30 pm this Friday, April 22, for a final glimpse of the exhibit and conversation around the green movement.
