Where: Tabla Rasa Gallery, Brooklyn
Why: Global Warming can’t continue to be a half-taken-seriously topic. Swedish-born Anders Knutsson has been painting 1,000-year-old trees for 19 years, and in his discussion on Saturday, he will address the essential role his subject plays in resolving climate issues. If you haven’t seen Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” this is a great opportunity. Art for Climate’s Sake.

Cost: Free, although seating is limited
