No Es Basura - This Is Not Trash

For ninety days in 2012, environmentalist and educator Peter Kreitler walked the same one quarter mile stretch of Santa Monica Beach collecting flotsam and debris that floated in from the ocean or was left on the beach. Pieces of this collected trash were taken to his home where all was sorted, a portion discarded, much recycled and the rest saved, meticulously cleaned and catalogued.

A year and a half later the selected items were photographed by fine arts photographer John Reiff Williams.

The body of work is entitled No Es Basura - This is Not Trash.

An exhibit of the work will be held in the eARThwe Gallery at Bergamot Station, with an opening reception for the artists on Saturday April 5, 2014, 5:30 - 9:30 pm, continuing through May 2, 2014.

In celebration of and to expand awareness for Earth Day, EarthWE will be co-hosting a number of non-profit organizations for event nights, including Sustainable Works, Peace Over Violence, and EMA.  On these nights, a portion of the No Es Basura sales will go directly to the co-hosting organization. 

EarthWE will be publishing those dates soon.
