"Horizons," at the Cheryl Hazen Gallery, showcases three artists: Russell Sharon, Jeff Muhs, and Bradley Narduzzi Rex. The exhibit investigates the divergence of space and the significance of different elements coexisting harmoniously.
Environmentalists’ beef with the Keurig system is in the single-use, non-recyclable nature of the packaging, given the implications for our waste stream. The individual parts of a K-Cup (plastic, paper and foil) could theoretically be recycled on their own, but the combination is too small and messy for recycling facilities to be able to sort. So our only choice is to throw the whole K-Cup pack, lock stock and barrel, into the garbage.
It was decades ago that I became involved (read, obsessed) with dangerous chemicals in our food. I was one of the first people to call attention to the growing use of pesticides... and this was in the sixties! I headed up an Organic Food co-op called “The Greenhouse” composed of community-minded people from the the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Counted among our members were John Lennon, Yoko Ono and Gwen Verdon who joined me in my concern about the poisoning of our food supply.
