WEAD Art on the Edge: From Extraction to Restoration and Regeneration Part 2 - 3D virtual exhibition by Wead Exhibitions

WEAD Art on the Edge: From Extraction to Restoration and Regeneration Part 2

This Women Eco Artists Dialog (WEAD) membership exhibition is on view at the Peninsula Museum of Art until the closing celebration on January 9, 2022. The show features thought provoking works in many mediums, from painting to photography, collage, assemblage, sculpture and small scale installations.
All work explores the destructive impacts of extraction, contrasted with hopeful potentials for restoration and regeneration.

“Art on the Edge: From Extraction to Restoration and Regeneration Part 2” is WEAD's second contribution to the Codex Foundation’s international project: EXTRACTION, Art on the Edge of the Abyss. This multimedia, multi-venue, cross-border art intervention seeks to provoke societal change by exposing and interrogating the negative social and environmental consequences of industrialized natural resource extraction. A global coalition of artists and creators are shining a light on all forms of extractive industry—from mining and drilling to the reckless plundering and exploitation of fresh water, fertile soil, timber, marine life, and innumerable other resources across the globe. The project is being produced independently within over 50 art spaces nationwide between 2019-2022, with the intent to create an “art ruckus” —focusing awareness and action on the overuse of Earth's resources and efforts to remediate and change practices. www.extractionart.org

PMA curators and a member of the WEAD board juried the exhibit, which reflects the unique perspectives of WEAD member artists who focus on addressing ecological and social justice issues.

Please note: 3D sculptures--free standing, pedestal based or wall hung, are all represented in this online gallery as 2D images. 3D artists include Blotner, Bonner, Escott, Garon, Landau, Schnake, Sowell, Tabancay, Vaughan
