505 Hawley Place
View the paintings of Ron Throop in this ArtRage Gallery exhibit April 11 thru May 23, 2015. Opening night reception Saturday, April 11 from 7 to 9pm. Everyone is welcome!
Hailing from Oswego, New York, Ron Throop is a prolific expressionist painter. This exhibition is selected from his on-going Fracking Series. Throop began painting on the subject in 2009, concerned that the process of hydraulic fracturing of the Marcellus Shale for natural gas has the potential of poisoning the groundwater for hundreds of thousands of people for many generations. Since 2009, hydrofracking has become a worldwide health and environmental threat and activists across the globe are working for bans. After years of campaigning, activists in New York State achieved a statewide ban on December 17, 2014.
"Art and artists must take up the moral torch. We have the ability to create an imagined memory before it's too late to turn back. The 21st century artist has a mission to make sense common once again." ~ Ron Throop
