Seventeen artists showcase work which aims to highlight issues surrounding climate change and the environment as a whole.


The first exhibition of 2017 at Banks Mill Studios will see work by seventeen artists and aims to highlight issues surrounding climate change and the environment as a whole.

Following an open call for work by Eco Create, an art and craft network,  finalists were chosen based on their interpretation of the theme – time and tide wait for no man - and works selected needed to be made using eco friendly and upcycled methods and materials wherever possible.

Kirstie Adamson of Eco Create, who has organised and curated the exhibition, comments: "We are again absolutely thrilled with the quality and diversity of work submitted.  People visiting our show can see a range of work including collage art, driftwood sculpture and artwork, textiles, glass and pictures made entirely from junk mail."

Viewers will be inspired by how artists have used a range of different techniques including, oxidisation, collage, reheated glass and pyrography.  One of the finalists, Banks Mill resident Kim Fowler will be exhibiting her work ‘The Siren’s Song’.

She explains: “This piece was made by transferring a laser print of an original drawing using citrasolve (a cleaner made from orange peel oil) on to a piece of driftwood. The smaller pieces with the text are also driftwood printed the same way, and the quote featured is from the song ‘There There’ by Radiohead.”
