Tiffany said: ‘We are thrilled to kick off C. Parker Gallery’s 10th anniversary season with this powerful new exhibition, featuring six of our Gallery’s leading artists who share our passion for nature’s beauty

‘We live in this beautiful part of the world, and our summer started with some of the worst air-quality days in history due to the wildfires, bringing this issue to the forefront. We are giving back to the community by joining forces with the United Nations’ International Day of Clean Air for Blue Skies, and we invite everyone in the Tri-State region to help make a difference alongside these environmental artists. They remind us of the need to safeguard our skies and foster a healthier planet.’

A portion of the exhibition sales proceeds will be donated to Greenwich Green and Clean and the Greenwich Youth Conservation Program.

‘I selected these six artists because their work represents the highest ideals of character, compassion and environmental consciousness.’ says Tiffany Benincasa, ‘This exhibition not only showcases the sheer beauty of our skies, but also serves as a call to action to support the United Nations Clean Air initiative. By leveraging our place of influence, we can encourage each individual to add their voice and collectively we can make a difference.’
