Water: This Precious Liquid

5 May – 2 July 2017

The idea of water – all-pervading and essential, fearsome yet controllable – is the focus of this exhibition. Artists over many decades have drawn attention to issues around global warming, water contamination, ill-judged engineering projects and the devastation of floods and storms. The historical and contemporary works in this exhibition, by Pam Debenham, Virginia Hilyard, Therese Kenyon, Sue Pedley and Peter Read, show some of the different ways in which these issues are visualised by artists.

A gallery artist project coordinated by Therese Kenyon.
