Climate Justice Concert w| Amora & Julia Newman

What can we do in times like these? What brings us together better than music, vibration, and energy, when we feel like we can’t overcome despair?
Come join us for a special night of music and togetherness for climate justice!

Be blessed with incredibly talented musicians and activists Alexandra Blakely, together with daughter Femi and siblings Brooke Hatch and Daniel Cherniske. Drop into your deeper e-m-oceans within debuting their collaborative music project Amora. This, accompanied by a special solo set of moving poetry and music by the lead singer of FeverTribe and Luness, Julia Newman.

We will be closing the night with some words from the Organization 350 Seattle, and have the opportunity to learn and sing with The Peoples Echo. More information on these organizations below.

All proceeds go to the musicians, the production of the event, and 350 Seattle and The Peoples Echo. Please consider a minimum donation of $20. NO ONE will be turned away for lack of funds.

350 Seattle | 350 Seattle works toward climate justice by organizing people to make deep system change: resisting fossil fuels; building momentum for healthy alternatives; and fostering resilient, just, and welcoming communities. People are the heart of 350 Seattle. We’ve come into this fight because of our passion for climate justice, and we work around the clock to influence the political, business, and social realities of our era in the hope of preserving a livable world.

The Peoples Echo | Our plan is to infuse the streets and our movement with original songs that can be used as powerful tools for change. Songs that are simple, easily learned, accessible, 4-8 lines max, sung in unison, without layers, inviting, and catchy. Think: repetitive melodies, chants, and mantras (see some song examples below to get inspired). We want to empower song leaders to arrive in the streets able to teach these songs, and also to prep our choir, The People’s Echo, to perform songs at events, when and where we are invited.

Jessica Cantlin: Latitude

Winston Wächter Fine Art is pleased to announce Jessica Cantlin’s first main gallery solo exhibition, Latitude.

Photographer and travel writer Jessica Cantlin ventures to remote locations of the globe, capturing the striking beauty of areas most of us will never visit. Her endless sense of wonder and dedication to the road not taken creates dramatic narratives in her work where weather, land, light and sky act as characters and guides. By documenting the simultaneous peacefulness and dramatic tension of these tenuous regions, Cantlin helps us appreciate and respect the power and importance of the natural world. Cantlin’s imagery reminds us of the fragility of the earth and of the urgency to confront climate change, and all we stand to lose.

The works included in Latitude are from the artist’s recent travels to Iceland and Lençóis Maranhenses, Brazil.  A stark contrast in location, Cantlin’s photographs explore the ephemeral quality of light and color in regions that are susceptible to dramatic and transient weather conditions. As part of her continuing study of the role that weather plays in how we experience the landscape, these photographs act as witness to the sublime beauty found in some of these most vulnerable environments.

Jessica Cantlin is a fine art photographer and writer. After leaving her career as a successful attorney she searched for ways to “feed her wanderlust.” By creating the popular blog under the same name, Cantlin is able to document her travels and share her experiences with the hope of inspiring others to appreciate the beauty surrounding them.

He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards including the Jacob K. Javits Fellowship; a New York Foundation of the Arts Artist Fellowship; and the Virginia Groot Foundation Fellowship. From mobile tractor-trailers to abandoned warehouses and galleries, McMahon’s work confronts and transforms both unconventional and conventional spaces. His sculptures challenge the permanence of art and place through performative and material-focused temporal constructions.

McMahon’s work has been shown both nationally and internationally at venues including Crane Arts, Philadelphia; The Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland; Pierogi Boiler Room, New York; G-Fine Arts, Washington, D.C.; Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts, Omaha; Suyama Space, Seattle; T & H Gallery, Boston, Tang Contemporary, Beijing, China; Practice Gallery, Philadelphia, PA; DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA; among others.
