2 APRIL - 6 JUNE, FORRESTER GALLERY, OAMARU, 9 Thames Street, Ōamaru
Following in the footsteps of successful Art and Science Projects over the previous seven years, artists worked with scientists from the University of Otago and beyond, individually or in small groups, to develop artworks which responded to the theme of “earth science” interpreted in a broad context. According to The Oxford Companion to the Earth, the earth sciences encompass fields of enquiry from “volcanoes to flood plains, diamonds to meteors, deserts to deep seas.” The disciplines included geology, climatology, mineralogy, and oceanography and opportunities extended from mapping the features of the third rock from the sun to journeys to the centre of the earth. The project exhibition was held in Dunedin at the Community Gallery in May 2021 and is now travelling to the Forrester Gallery in Ōamaru.
Exhibiting artists include: Megan Brasell-Jones, Vivien Dwyer, Desi Liversage, Senorita AweSUMO, Heramaahina Eketone, Kate Elder, Katherine Steeds, Stella Lange, Christine Keller, Jessica Ritchie, Craig Cook, Becky Cameron, Geoff Wyvill, Manu Berry, Debbie Fleming, Katharine Allard, Pam McKinlay and Down the Rabbit Hole Art Collective 2022, Sarah Shackleton, Eden Smith.
