A Hydrofracking Forum Monday night in Honeoye Falls will add artwork to the debate about the environmental impacts of hydrofracking.

The event, at 7 p.m. at the Rabbit Room, 61 North Main St., Honeoye Falls, in the historic Lower Mill, is free and open to the public. Artwork on display will include landscape-based paintings of hydrofracked sites by South Lima artist Gloria Betlem, wood cuts of endangered and invasive species by Ithaca artist Jenny Pope, and a quilt depicting a hydrofracking well penetrating layers of earth by Mary Louise Gerek, a member of Rochester Area Fiber Artists.

According to Allison DeMarco, the meeting’s organizer, the intent of the informational forum is to bring together people from Ontario, Livingston and Monroe Counties to explore ways the three counties can work together to help shape regulations covering hydrofracking in the region. Honeoye Falls is located in Monroe County, near the borders of both Livingston and Ontario counties.
