The show is part of the series of exhibitions that Terra Mater Art are producing over the next few years. The previous one was Germination, at Tremenheere in November 2021. They all deal with the issues of climate change, ecology, our relationship to the planet and its natural life.
We are a core group of ten women who address these concerns in our individual work, and we work in diverse ways. Included in the current show:
art jewellery by Sarah Drew and Donna Burns,
sculpture by Whitney Raye Manning,
ceramics by Laurel Keeley,
paintings by Dana Finch and Karen McEndoo.
The title “Degrees” refers to the critical rise in temperature to 2 degrees which we need to avoid to avert climate disaster. The show aims to provoke discussion about the climate emergency and to stimulate ideas for potential solutions.
It is an interactive exhibition with a video installation from Cornwall Climate Care and a collaborative installation (messages in bottles) and free half term workshops for children, making plant walls, flood pictures and found jewellery on 24th February. 10% of all sales go to Cornwall Wildlife Trust. There will be additional items for sale in the museum shop.
