    Wead Art on the Edge: From Extraction to Restoration and Regeneration Part One

    “Art on the Edge: From Extraction to Restoration and Regeneration Part I” is Women Eco Artists Dialog's first offering in response to the Codex Foundation’s challenge to create an “art ruckus” around the theme of EXTRACTION, Art on the Edge of the Abyss. https://www.weadartists.org A global coalition of artists and creators are shining light on all forms of extractive industry—from mining and drilling to the reckless plundering and exploitation of fresh water, fertile soil, timber, marine life, and innumerable other resources across the globe.This multimedia, multi-venue, cross-border art intervention seeks to provoke societal change by exposing and interrogating the negative social and environmental consequences of industrialized natural resource extraction. The project is being produced independently within over 50 art spaces nationwide between 2019-2022. www.extractionart.org This WEAD membership exhibition was created in collaboration with Gallery Route One in Point Reyes, CA and was on view there from September 18 to October 24, 2021. Curators Pamela Blotner and Toni Littlejohn note that this exhibition “depicts instances of environmental extraction worldwide including the excesses of illegal gold mining, the dangers of offshore drilling for petroleum, the effects of rising global temperatures, long line and drag net fishing that exhaust marine life and increase ocean pollution, and the hunting of species to the point of extinction. The exhibition also presents restorative solutions such as sequestering carbon from the atmosphere back into the soil via regenerative agricultural practices.” Included in this online exhibition are selected works of 13 of the 16 participating artists. Similar works to those not shown here by Caroline Landau and Lorna Stevens can be seen in Wead’s Part II exhibition also on Kunstmatrix. MIe Preckler’s ongoing intervention in the existing landscape at I-Park is well documented at i-park.org/docs/Conversation_Mies_Trail_Brochure Recordings of two online Artists Presentations from this Gallery Route One Exhibition can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJYNVRruGSE&t=1914s and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkgjgWdWMKE

    WEAD Art on the Edge: From Extraction to Restoration and Regeneration Part 2

    This Women Eco Artists Dialog (WEAD) membership exhibition is on view at the Peninsula Museum of Art until the closing celebration on January 9, 2022. The show features thought provoking works in many mediums, from painting to photography, collage, assemblage, sculpture and small scale installations. All work explores the destructive impacts of extraction, contrasted with hopeful potentials for restoration and regeneration. “Art on the Edge: From Extraction to Restoration and Regeneration Part 2” is WEAD's second contribution to the Codex Foundation’s international project: EXTRACTION, Art on the Edge of the Abyss. This multimedia, multi-venue, cross-border art intervention seeks to provoke societal change by exposing and interrogating the negative social and environmental consequences of industrialized natural resource extraction. A global coalition of artists and creators are shining a light on all forms of extractive industry—from mining and drilling to the reckless plundering and exploitation of fresh water, fertile soil, timber, marine life, and innumerable other resources across the globe. The project is being produced independently within over 50 art spaces nationwide between 2019-2022, with the intent to create an “art ruckus” —focusing awareness and action on the overuse of Earth's resources and efforts to remediate and change practices. www.extractionart.org PMA curators and a member of the WEAD board juried the exhibit, which reflects the unique perspectives of WEAD member artists who focus on addressing ecological and social justice issues. Please note: 3D sculptures--free standing, pedestal based or wall hung, are all represented in this online gallery as 2D images. 3D artists include Blotner, Bonner, Escott, Garon, Landau, Schnake, Sowell, Tabancay, Vaughan Gallery Route One in Point Reyes Station hosted WEAD’s Art on the Edge: From Extraction to Restoration and Regeneration Part 1, also posted here on Kunstmatrix. https://www.weadartists.org
