Climate Change Art Exhibition at Sean Hollywood Arts Centre
A new art exhibition entitled Silent: Listen 2 by Navan artist Mary Clarke which explores the effects and threats of global climate change will run at the Sean Hollywood Arts Centre from Tuesday 3 to Friday 27 March.
The collection presents a series of abstract painted works on canvas and photographic paper with collaged photo prints. Enveloped in themes of climate change and environment, Mary exhibits her vibrant collection of images in an impactful visual display with an important message. Be Silent and listen, our planet speaks.
Mary explores the necessity to be still, observe and pay heed to the catastrophic global issues relating to climate change that speak to us daily. The viewer is asked to pay attention or pay the price.
Attempting to tackle widespread apathy and inaction whilst helping to visualise the effects and threats of global climate change, Mary depicts images of glacial melting ice masses, deep sea colour and futuristic images in brilliant technicolour. Mary attempts to engage the imagination and provoke a reaction, all in an effort to inspire a positive response.
Chairperson of Newry Mourne and Down District Council adds “it is collectively all our responsibility to look after this beautiful planet, and this exhibition is a sensitive display of the topic, with the paintings encouraging us to be Silent: Listen and Save our Seas”
The exhibition can be viewed Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5pm. For Evening viewings contact the Sean Hollywood Arts Centre on 0330 137 4304.
