ACROSS THE WAVES : 10 SOUTH WEST PRINTMAKERS EXPLORE MIGRATORY WATERBIRDS launch 28 September

September 26 @ 10:00 am - October 21 @ 4:00 pm

 

Across the Waves

10 South West Printmakers explore migratory waterbirds

26 September – 21 October 2018

Opening night Friday 28 September 6pm

 

Ten South West printmakers, Des Bunyon, Delia Crabbe, Ben Fennessy, Sue Ferrari, Jean Gleeson, Jodie Honan, Marion Manifold, Andrea Radley, Maree Stewart and Heather Wood, have joined forces using the medium of print making to highlight the plight of  migratory waterbirds, supporting ‘The Overwintering Project’ an environmental art project run by Kate Gorringe-Smith with artists from Australia and New Zealand responding to the unique nature of their local migratory shorebird habitats.

Migratory and coastal birds are suffering from human pressures. Many birds are making the epic flight to Australia only to end up dying from plastic pollution – the single feather, and the plastic nest, a reminder of this ominous end.

Each needs action so it doesn’t disappear altogether. Dogs, climate change, drainage, urban and industrial development … all have an effect. Being migratory they suffer from a lack of visibility – here one day and gone the next.

Hopefully this exhibition and the other exhibitions in the ‘Overwintering Project’ will increase awareness of the migratory shorebirds’ issues.
