Dreaming Of The Future

Ghost Tree Red Line – Jenny Bielawski, Inglewood, Taranaki.

Selected works by New Zealand members of The Surface Design Association.

January 7th to February 15th 2021

The Theme: Dreaming Of The Future.

In these times of huge upheaval socially, financially and politically we are all facing a future of a different shape from the past we are walking from. While there is much reason for fear and tension there is also an indomitable human spirit for survival and a powerful restorative force of Mother Nature. Both these ‘influencers’ can be ‘vaccines’ for strengthening our humanity as we move forward into this uncharted territory. 

The artists have been selected, the works are all hanging in the gallery. There is a wide variety of expressions around this theme and now the exhibition is open for viewing it is a very stimulating discussion about some visions for our future.

The exhibition will also be available on The Surface Design Association web page as a virtual exhibition. https://www.surfacedesign.org/

A series of artist talks and studio visits will be created in a virtual format so this exhibition is easily available. All links will be posted on this website for the gallery.

Here are some images to wet your appetite to come and see the works in the flesh.

Over the next few weeks we will be featuring the artists from SDA who are included in this exhibition. The art works will be gradually added to the website shop as well so that you can read more about each work and its maker.
