Water, Water, everywhere… The artists take a stand

Opening Sunday August 20 at 4pm
Exhibition runs from Sunday August 20 to Saturday September 23, 2017
The Diversion Gallery, Picton

Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink…

Swimmable, wadeable, drinkable…? Or degraded? These are questions our artists have long explored, working to raise public consciousness of the issues into the ‘mainstream’ before it is too late. The above quote from Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner seems devastatingly appropriate to the worsening state of our rivers, harbours and other waterways.

So, with the election looming, what better subject for an exhibition to raise awareness of the need for a change in attitude – and action!

The exhibition includes works by:
Graham Bennett
Nigel Brown
Barry Cleavin
Bing Dawe
Fatu Feu’u
Gregory O’Brien
Wayne Seyb
