NEW YORK - Dec. 8, 2021 - PRLog -- American artist and animal/environment activist Angela Manno will exhibit work from her eco-spiritual series, Icons of Endangered Species, in the group exhibition, Earth on the Edge. The group show explores the tipping points of climate change, from December 14 through the 24th at Ceres Gallery 547 West 27th Street, Suite 201 in Manhattan. In Earth on the Edge, Manno presents her entire series Icons of Endangered Species, highlighting animals, insects, and flora that are currently either threatened or critically endangered due to a variety of factors around the world. From Florida panthers to Andean flamingos, star cactus to Monarch butterflies, the subjects of Ms. Manno's Icons of Endangered Species remind us of nature's diversity, interconnectedness, and fragility.
Ms. Manno shares, "I am thrilled to be sharing 15 of my original pieces as part of Earth on the Edge, joining other artists that are equally passionate about continuing to drive home the importance of us all acting as one, and taking stock in changing how we all look at our earth's declining environment. It affects us all. The rate of extinction of species is an explosion in slow motion that is now rapidly gaining momentum."
Applying the traditional processes of icon painting to contemporary environmental concerns, Icons of Endangered Species aims to elevate non-human species to their rightful and equal place in the community of being. These paintings, made with egg tempera and gold leaf on wood, apply the traditional processes of icon painting and each piece takes Ms. Manno several months to create. By depicting such subjects in this way, Manno portrays nature as both vulnerable and sublime, calling for our reverence and our care for the condition of the planet.
Edward O. Wilson, World-renowned Conservation Biologist said of her work, "In her remarkable animal portraits, Angela Manno has found a way to combine exactitude with meaning in the faces of her subjects, no less than if they were in Nature's studio looking out to the friendly observer."
As an internationally and nationally exhibited artist she has had successful shows in France, Canada, Colorado, Florida, New York, Washington, D.C., and Vermont. Ms. Manno is the recipient of several awards and grants, including The Award for Excellence: The National Park Academy of the Arts; Thematic Award: College of Art and Design, Iowa State University; The Xerox Corporation:
The exhibition Earth on the Edge has been curated by M. Annenberg especially for Ceres Gallery, a feminist, not-for-profit, alternative gallery in New York City, dedicated to the promotion of contemporary women in the arts.
