Tsunami+Sandy+Deep Water Horizon: bringing awareness after the disaster

Local actor and model Mariko Kanto is organizing a month an a half of events around the anniversary of 3/11/11. Tsunami+Sandy+Deep Water Horizon: bringing awareness after the disaster, features an exhibit at the Hancock 309 Gallery in Dorchester that will run from Saturday, February 9 at 6pm through Saturday, March 23 at 6pm. The exhibit will feature Camila Chaves Cortes's TSUNAMI as well as works from:

Charles G. Baldwin
Brenda F. Burton
Drea Designs Couture
Jason Fitz-Gerald
Mihoko Hakata
Eric Hovermale
Wendy Jean Hyde
Nobuyuki Inukai
Matthew Lazure

Tewassa, the Japanese quilting group I'm a member of, will be participating in some of the events. We'll definitely be at the opening although our other appearances are TBA. We'll have the current quilt that we're working on - one that was pieced together by students at Brookline High School - on hand so people can add a few stitches of decoration.
