Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Wednesday 8th May-Saturday 1st June 2019
Meet the artist - Saturday 11May, 1 -2pm, All Welcome.
Exhibition runs 8 May to 1 June 2019.
We are proud to present three exhibitions by three local artists with a mutual underlying concept - The Human Conditions in our environment.
Here we have Maggy Johnston with a body of work that reflects on our behaviour in regards to the current environmental issues, whilst an issue worldwide, the work presented relates to our people, councils and industries here in Nelson and in a wider sense to New Zealand.
In the artists words...'an expression of the on-going use of plastic in our local area and its pollution of the environment, both land and sea. It is time that our people, councils and industries took responsibility for their part in the catastrophic problem of plastic environmental pollution. We can no longer be complacent as the health of the planet is at risk, and we must all act now: this is our home, and the home of our future generations. These ‘totems’ express our thoughtless behaviour, but is this how we want to be remembered?'
