“Art provides” begins a paragraph on the Hawaii Conservation Alliance’s webpage on a July 27 reception featuring Melissa Chimera and her mother, Adele Ne Jame. The paragraph continues:
one of the most effective ways to connect people to conservation. The Hawai‘i Conservation Conference presents an annual “Conservation Through Art” exhibition that allows participants the opportunity to share artists’ awareness of and appreciation for Hawai‘i’s natural environment.
At the beginning of the reception, Chimera will talk about her paintings and her efforts to educate people about Hawai‘i’s endangered species through her art. Later in the evening, Ne Jame will read her nature-inspired poetry. Details of the event: Wed., July 27, 6 to 8 p.m., The ARTS at Marks Garage.
