NEW EXHIBITION NOW OPEN AT SUNDERLAND MUSEUM AND WINTER GARDENS -OCT 2021

An exciting exhibition by artists, mother and daughter, Barbara and Catherine Reed. Drawing on their life in Africa the exhibition focuses on the first peoples of Africa, the San, and their relationship with the planet living in total harmony with nature for thousands of years. Today the San are themselves under threat of extinction at a time the world should be learning from them.

Featuring textiles, oil paintings and mixed media artworks the exhibition explores the San’s relationship with nature and links this with recent news coverage and images of man’s actions today on the planet – pollution from mining, burning of fossil fuels, the devastating effects of climate change.
