Material Drift, a Well-Traveled Exhibition of Environmental Art, Comes Home to Atlanta


Pam Longobardi Exhibition at ArtLife Gallery in Venice, Italy

The latest works from Pam Longobardi’s Drifters Project will drift home this month from their last showing in Venice, Italy to an exciting gallery and rooftop exhibition entitled Material Drift at the Sandler Hudson Gallery Project Room in Atlanta, Georgia. Like the marine debris used to create Longobardi’s art, items collected off the beaches along South Point on the Big Island of Hawaii, her work has traveled many miles, and crossed many oceans bringing awareness on the trashing of our oceans to people all over the globe. On May 21st, Material Drift will open right here in the US with an artist’s reception from 6-8 PM and will run through July 3rd, 2010.

The exhibition is being held in celebration of Longobardi’s new book from the Italian publisher, CHARTA, entitled, Drifters. This 96 page book with 68 illustrations, including essays by Longobardi, Carl Safina, Ron Broglio, and others is now on sale. A book signing and artist’s talk is also scheduled for June 3rd from 6-7:30 PM as part of the exhibition events. Read More »
