(flash presentation; right-click to play)

Alfa Art Gallery is proud to announce the opening of the Art to Green” series of the exhibitions dedicated to the Global Warming and Climate Change, part of the Green Wave initiative.
The exhibition will be on display during the period August 8th - September 4th.

“Bringing art and science together, we can change the way people do things in the world...". Alfa is committed to the idea that one salient image, sculpture or event can speak louder than volumes of scientific data and raise the public weariness about environmental problems, global warming and climate change.

Through art exhibitions, performing events and films, artists and scientists can pioneer an interdisciplinary approach to raising awareness and bringing environmental problems into focus.

Joseph Kilrain

Joey Kilrain has been telling stories through his art work his whole life. His topics are usually about Corporate America, Friends and Family, and his life adventures. Thus producing an eclectic body of work; his whimsical paintings and raw uncut visuals from his diary. Both of Joey's styles are full of energy and easy to approach.

"Being Green has been a way of life for me ever since I was a little boy. Coming from a poor working class family in South Philadelphia the only meansI had to produce my art was with materials I found. At first stealing markers and spray paint for graffiti seemed to be the perfect fit until a hard lesson left me with a broken heart and a sore body. I moved on to card board boxes and old copy books which were great but were not giving my 110% satisfaction. It wasn't until the idea of stretching canvas on an old window frame that I felt I was on the right path. With old bed sheets in hand I started to craft perfect canvases to paint on from items destined for land fills.

Now with nearly all of my materials coming from recycled means my art work leaves a soft ecological footprint and a great story for society. -- Joey Kilrain"
