NEW YORK, NY.- Tracy Williams, Ltd. and Fitzroy Gallery present On the Blue Shore of Silence, a benefit for Parley for the Oceans in support of their initiative, The Vortex Project. Titled after the poem by Pablo Neruda, this exhibition delves into the open sea. Featuring work by over 50 artists, the show consists of sculpture, photography, painting, video, and works on paper. As a group, the artworks are evocative- in some instances more in essence and atmosphere than in physicality- of the power and enchantment of the ocean.

In light of our waning oceans ecosystems, this exhibition will donate a portion of sale proceeds to The Vortex Project, in an effort to amend the devastation and restore bio-diversity in the sea. Together, we hope to initiate a greater discussion and deeper awareness surrounding ocean and marine life conservation.

Parley for the Oceans: Parley is the space where creators, thinkers, and leaders come together to raise awareness for the beauty and fragility of our oceans and to collaborate on projects that can end their destruction. Please learn more about Parley at www.fortheoceans.org. 

The Vortex Project: Founded in 2013 by the non-for-profit organization Parley for the Oceans,  with collaborators like Bionic Yarn, and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, with partner organizations including Plastic Pollution Coalition, The Ocean Alliance, MARE, and Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry, the initiative addresses the fast-growing threat of plastic pollution. The Vortex Project retrieves plastic from the shorelines and oceans, recycles it, and turns it into smart consumer products to create funding and awareness. Details at www.thevortexproject.org.
