Earth Day Panel Discussion at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery

April 17, 2013

(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) - In conjunction with the Catherine Miller: Changing Environs exhibit now showing, the Confederation Centre Art Gallery will host a public panel discussion on Earth Day - Monday, April 22, from 7 to 9 p.m. Panelists will include Erin Taylor, climate change coordinator with the Provincial Department of Environment, Labour and Justice; Dr. Adam Fenech, director of the Climate Research Lab at the University of Prince Edward Island; Don Jardine, principal of DE Jardine Consulting; and artist Catherine Miller whose exhibit of two and three-dimensional artworks explores the entwined and often conflicting pressures of land use, environmental protection and climate change on Prince Edward Island. The Panelists will each present their own images, observations, and research on the topic of climate change and the audience will be welcome to ask questions and add comments.

The key objectives are to engage Miller's visual art works in a conversation that includes other environmental professionals and scientists studying climate change and to make these various forms of research accessible to the public at a time when several rounds of consultations on land use and environmental sustainability are underway in this province.

The panel will be held in Confederation Centre's Studio 1 theatre, adjacent to the Catherine Miller: Changing Environs exhibit in the Concourse and Entrance Gallery. Refreshments will be served and this promises to be an informative and timely discussion.
