Margaret Silverwood 'You, Me And The Wild'

18 October - 8 November

Solander is delighted to present a new series of line etchings and drawings examining the complex relationship between humans and the rest of nature, by Wanganui based artist Margaret Silverwood.

"Unhappily, this poor, devitalized word "nature" which we must use to speak of the non-human world has lost its force by coming to mean for us an objectified realm of miscellaneous physical things and events which is outside of and other than us... We forget that nature is, quite simply, the universal continuum, ourselves inextricably included; it is that which mothered us into existence, which will outsurvive us, and from which we have learned (if we still remember the lesson) our destiny." Theodore Roszak, Where The Wasteland Ends (1972)

'You, Me and the Wild' promises to be a show of sublime work that is both thought provoking and refreshingly unexpected. Please join us at the exhibition opening on Saturday 18 October from 1 - 3pm.

WHAT: Exhibition Opening of "You, Me and the Wild" new etchings and drawings by Margaret Silverwood.

WHERE: Solander: works on paper, 95 Tirangi Rd (Ground Floor Vincent Aviation Bld), Lyall Bay, Wellington

WHEN: Saturday 18 October from 1 - 3pm. Exhibition runs until 8 November.
