6th September – 7th October
Thursday – Sunday 11am – 5pm
Precious Earth Art Collective (PEAC) will be exhibiting a new body of work at the Panacea Museum during September. The title of the exhibition, Anthropocene refers to a new geological epoch, a time when humanity constitutes the largest force for change on earth and the exhibition has been developed in response to the CENSAMM International Conference Natural Disasters and Apocalypse.
PEAC are a great mix of local and international artists who share a common belief that we can make a positive change to this world and learn to value and help each other, human and animal, no matter where on this planet you are born. This multi-media exhibition will include sculpture, painting, textiles, film, writings and ceramics. PEAC believe that unless we as a race change our priorities we will experience the sixth mass extinction…the last human asteroid
Mandy Caldon, artist and founder of PEAC, was inspired to involve the community in her vision to create art to inspire change. She met with a group of like-minded artists while teaching ceramics in Bedford. The resulting collective has grown to include professional artists, community groups and those that are just beginning to create new work.
On Saturday the 15th Sept from 11-4pm PEAC will be hosting Anthropocene-Keep It Green! in the Panacea Museum Gardens. Speakers will include:
- Rupert Read – Green Politician and Philosopher
- Jo Atherton – Environmental Artist
- Aletheia Mashiri – Community Gardener
- Athen Ayren– Greenpeace Greenspeaker
- Jane Perrone– Freelance writer specialising in plants and gardens
- Kezzabelle Ambler – Performance Poet
There will be a range of stands including Abundance Bedford, Greenpeace, The Woodland Trust and Bedfordshire Climate Change Forum. Free workshops will include ‘Green Wishes’ ceramics for adults and children and ‘Museum Of The Future’ family quiz.
