Art on the Edge at the Peninsula Museum of Art
Art on the Edge: From Extraction to Restoration and Regeneration Part 2
This special exhibition features 38 Women EcoArtists Dialog (WEAD) member artists, filling our space with art reacting to the complex issues of Extraction and some alternatives to excessive consumption of Earth's natural resources.
Reflecting on these works, viewers will experience a wide palette of responses: an intimate examination of the immense beauty that surrounds us; rage, irony and dark humor in the face of Earth's abuse, an optimism that Nature will self-heal given the chance, as well as humorous and serious suggestions for recycling of resources and more.
From painting to photography, collage, assemblage, sculpture and small scale installations, we offer thanks to these artists whose work expresses a strong commitment to the responsible use of Earth's natural materials.
The extensive EXTRACTION project is being produced independently within at least 46 art spaces nationwide between 2019-2022, with the purpose of focusing awareness and action on the overuse of Earth's resources and efforts to remediate - or change practices.
