Common Lands Exhibition

February 15 @ 11:00 am - February 24 @ 5:00 pm

 

An exhibition of work by Frann Preston-Gannon and AOI Member Maggie Li

 

An exhibition of illustration, giclée, silk-screen prints and hand-painted wooden models bringing together a collection of work centered around the natural world and the changes and effects from our impact upon it.

 

Common Lands explores themes of biodiversity, habitat, destruction and migration, drawing parallels between the struggles in nature and in human societies.

 

Ideal for families, this exhibition looks both at the negative – the effects of sharing a planet whose natural spaces are diminishing faster than ever, and the positive – an overall celebration of the wonder of nature and how all living beings may live together more harmoniously.

 

Two contemporary artists sharing a common interest in the natural world have come together to share this creative space for celebrating, exhibiting and, most importantly, learning.

Providing a wonderful opportunity for meaningful public engagement, Preston-Gannon and Li are offering a program of free, daily, drop-in workshops. This is a series of workshops and local community engagement activities designed to offer art and creativity to children.
