Artist Mark Appling Fisher will discuss his Sheldon exhibit, Through a Glass, Darkly, on view through September 6 in the Nancy Spirtas Kranzberg Gallery.

On view is a collection of Appling’s photographs created with 19th century glass plates, combined with his own contemporary work. Fisher addresses climate change, from its earliest impact on our atmosphere to its increasing deleterious effects on the planet. Issues including flood, fire, erosion, air pollution, water pollution, overuse and abuse of chemicals such as pesticides and fertilizers, as well as the major factor driving us beyond the tipping point – carbon dioxide emissions from manufacturing and automobiles – is referenced in his work.
