Like many of us, the Terra Mater artists share a concern for the damage humans are precipitating on the planet, for the reality of climate change and the effect it will have on societies and eco-systems, on our whole way of life and very existence.

With this exhibition the Terra Mater art group hopes to spark discussions about what is happening now and likely to occur in the near future, as well as considering and suggesting possible solutions and methods to counteract the damaging increase in global temperatures.

The exhibition aims to be as interactive as possible, with:

  • Collaborative installation sending messages in a bottle to tie in with the Broken Promises found bottle neck chandelier
  • Free half term kids workshop making plant walls, flood pictures and found jewellery on 24th Feb
  • Meet the artist day on 15th March
  • Free cocktail private view on 14th February
  • Affordable pieces available in the shop to tie in with the exhibition
  • 10% sales going to Cornwall Wildlife Trust
  • Video installation from Cornwall Climate Care
