Colette Beardall - A silenced Earth
October 14, 2016 to December 14, 2016
 
I am quite simply an animal lover. Clay is my medium. It is my vehicle for presenting work that is meaningful to me. I was moved beyond the extreme in learning about the plight of the animals I present. If this exhibit of my work touches you in some way, we have made a connection and I hope this can lead to more understanding and exploration within the viewer to not just accept things as they are, but to research and to examine and investigate. If not for yourself, then your children. Your grandchildren.

It is estimated that in 100 years the earth will experience 50 % species loss. Can we stop it? Probably not. Can we slow it? Absolutely. Can we engage to try?. When the alternative is simply apathy, how can we not try? There are only 57 Amur Leopards left roaming the earth. 3 Northern White Rhinos are left in protected captivity.

The time to act is beyond immediate.
