Fragile Planet is a major exhibition of watercolours by Cornwall’s world-renowned wilderness artist, Tony Foster.
A stark picture of the environmental risks now being faced around the world, Fragile Planet – Watercolour Journeys into Wild Places, highlights the precariousness of the world’s wildernesses and endangered environments, many of which Tony has visited and painted over the past 30 years. Sadly, some no longer exist, while others have been dramatically altered by the twin perils of climate change and human intervention.
MIGRATION, an all-site exhibition by artist printmaker Julian Meredith
Monday 7 March to Tuesday 24 May 2022
Monday to Thursday 10am – 3pm. Admission free.
Julian Meredith is an artist printmaker and beekeeper. His art rails against the loss of habitat and the extinction of familiar creatures. His subject matter is fish, birds, animals and insects, their relationship to their environment and to us. The title of this exhibition – MIGRATION – represents a natural phenomena which is an endless source of fascination for Meredith. But it is also a timely warning of the consequences of climate change which could lead to the greatest waves of global migration and remapping of populations that the world has ever seen.
