On this week’s Earth Matters, Donna Stevens, Executive Director of the Upper Gila Watershed Alliance, welcomes two guests to speak about the visual arts.
In the first half of the show, Stevens interviews Earth Matters co-host Allyson Siwik about the 5th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Silver City. Scheduled for January 9, 2016, the festival features films of wild rivers, social justice, wildlife, climate change, and conservation biology.
Artist Tom Holt joins us in the second half of the program to talk about his work, personal philosophy, the inspiration he finds at the Gila River, and humanity’s connection to the natural world. Tom generously donated a Gila River landscape painting to the Gila Conservation Coalition and Southwestern New Mexico Audubon Society to fund efforts to defend the river he so dearly loves. Raffle tickets for Holt’s painting go on sale at the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, with the drawing to be held at the April 22 Earth Day celebration. All proceeds from the film fest and raffle sales benefit work to protect the Gila River.
Earth Matters is broadcast
Tuesday, Thursday & Sunday at 10am and Thursday at 8pm.
