Following on from a fantastically successful and well-received show at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens in November last year, join the Terra Mater Artists at the fantastic Royal Cornwall Museum, on River St in Truro for their next exhibition, to see new work from 6 local artists and makers who are all concerned about the effects of climate change in their work.
The show is called Degrees: referring to the critical rise in temperature to 2 degrees which we need to avoid to prevent climate disaster, but it also allows the artists to think about the extent to which people will be affected by these changes, depending not only on where they live on the planet (degrees of latitude and longitude) but also on their social and economic situation.
In the show you’ll be able to see:
Paintings by Karen McEndoo and Dana Finch
Ceramics by Laurel Keeley
Sculpture by Whitney Manning
Art jewellery by Sarah Drew and Donna Burns
Like many of us, the Terra Mater artists share a concern for the damage humans are precipitating on the planet, for the reality of climate change and the effect it will have on societies and eco-systems, on our whole way of life and very existence.
With this exhibition, the Terra Mater art group hopes to spark discussions about what is happening now and likely to occur in the near future, as well as considering and suggesting possible solutions and methods to counteract the damaging increase in global temperatures.
