Have you noticed that the weather is changing every day, outside and on TV?

What, if anything, can each of us do to help?

Find out at Brandi Merolla’s “Climate Change” presentation at “The Climate Event,” sponsored by the Barryville Area Arts Association, to be held from 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 4, at the Artists’ Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola.

Merolla is a pop folk artist whose work has been displayed all around the world. She is well known for her staged photographs posing vintage toys and figurines to tell stories.

“Regardless of our political leanings, changes in climate are affecting all of us," Merolla said. "And there are things, both big and small, that each of us can do to make things better.”

Bring your climate change questions for the Q&A session she’ll have after her talk. She will show samples of her work.

This free community event also includes exhibits of both classic and contemporary art, all with a climate theme, and complimentary refreshments. The classic art exhibit features prints of a dozen winter weather creations by artists such as Claude Monet and Edvard Munch.

This event is made possible through grants from the Richard L. Snyder Fund, administered through the Greater Pike Community Foundation; and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
