John DeFaro: Trawler
Feb. 11 – March 11, 2012
Opening Reception: Fri., Feb. 10, 6 - 9 pm
“Trawler” is the name given to a boat or vessel used for trawling. John DeFaro’s site-specific installation will combine activism and environmental concerns with visual art as a communicator. Within the installation, writings relating to materials of the project will address fishermen and ghost nets, and the environmental impact of farming the seas as a metaphor. DeFaro is originally from the Hamptons in New York and has lived for several years in South Florida.
