Wise Women and the Earth - Sawyer Gallery - launch event 14th September @2pm

The exhibition brings together six artists who work in different media, and have been collaborating through 2019 with a number of residential stays at Inverewe House. Their individual and collective work has been inspired by the experience of staying in the garden and by the Wester Ross land and seascapes.

Their collective work is a joint response to their emotional engagement with the environment, as well as the history and community that is found at Inverewe. Each artist focuses on one of these six intertwining themes:

Ann Coomber – sculpture (Support theme) –

Lynn Bennet-Mackenzie – visual artist (Cycles) –

Dorje-Khandro David – singer, songwriter, storyteller (Foundations) –

Mandy Haggith – wordsmith (Diversity) –

Joanne B Kaar –  research-based artist (Beginnings) –

Katherine Sutherland – painter (Shelter) –

Inverewe Operations Manager, Kevin Frediani, says: ‘We live in a time of great change and, amongst all the tension and feeling of being outwith any one person’s control, it’s great to witness a group of artists coming together and collaborating around themes that underpin our human relationship with the wider earth system. I find this both profound and timely.’

Part of the exhibition is ‘Songline through Inverewe Garden’. if you click on this Songlines link to another page on this website you can read more about these and download them to listen to, either whilst in the Garden or at your leisure.
