11 November – 29 January 2017 – Upper Gallery
The Artweeks Arctic exhibition presents work from nine artists who have been inspired by this remote yet important landscape. The show continues the Museum’s yearlong Visions of Nature programme, which celebrates a range of artistic responses to the natural environment, and provided the perfect opportunity to collaborate with Oxfordshire Artweeks.
“Oxfordshire Artweeks is a local organisation for artists and designer-makers across the county. It was a surprise, therefore, to discover a large number who were fascinated and inspired by the ecology and habitat of the Arctic and concerned by the changes that are occurring there.”
Esther Lafferty, Festival Director of Oxfordshire Artweeks
This exhibition presents Arctic artworks by: Susan Avery,
Harriet Coleridge, Charlie Davies, Kina Gorska, Mary Knowland,
Ross Mackenzie, Vital Peeters, Mia Sarosi and Barbara Shaw.
