Join us at this community workshop:
Upcycle marine debris and make your own whale!

What is Upsculpting?
UpSculpting is the act of combining upcycling with sculpture to create environmentally conscious art. Upcycling is the reuse of discarded objects or materials to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original, in this case with marine plastics.
About Cindy Pease Roe
Cindy Pease Roe’s lifelong journey as a nautical artist began 30 years ago when she lived on a sailboat in Nantucket Harbor.
She has since lived in other seaside communities (currently Greenport, Long Island) as she gravitates towards people who share a similar admiration and respect for the ocean. Living on the water has honed Roe’s gift of seeing all of its nuances. Her ability to express the sea’s serenity, history, function and, increasingly, its vulnerability, has added another dimension to her work: environmental educator.
Roe’s overarching connection to the ocean is conveyed in paintings of endangered working waterfronts and seascapes.
Most recently, she has garnered the interest of schoolchildren, art lovers and activists by collecting plastic flotsam she finds along the shoreline and transforming it into thought-provoking and visually stimulating sculptures. Roe works in a variety of media to capture the depth of her subject, including oil paints, encaustics, organic matter, plastic and sculpture.

Presented by New York Academy of Art with Southampton Arts Center. Curated by David Kratz and Stephanie Roach, and edited by Emma Gilbey Keller. Artists and writers are always the antennae of our society, all the more so at a time as challenging as this one. They have an opportunity—some might say, a duty—to interpret this moment and imagine the world not only as it is, but also as it could be. This is the guiding challenge of the group exhibition, 2020 Vision. We asked artists, writers, and creative thinkers to consider three questions of critical importance: Our lives will never be the same, but what will change look like? What do we want to keep as we rebuild? And what must we guard against? We invited these creators to express what they saw, what they felt, and what they experienced during this time of pause and reassessment, upheaval and risk, and anxiety and uncertainty. It is our hope that 2020 Vision marks one of many beginnings in the necessary process of ‘post-traumatic growth’ and positive change for our society and our world.
