‘Gathering’ reflects a communal act of intimacy shared between people, site and materials. Local artists will reflect on this theme through their interdisciplinary practice to explore the act of gathering and its value in the aftermath of the pandemic.

My work is an assemblage of objects found while navigating the world. Individual things call out to me and I collect them: they have a resonance with my visual field, a conversation with my body. I think about the sun, how important it is to feeling good, to growing, how much we look forward to it coming back in the spring, all the more so after the year just passed. It’s a celebration of the sun, how it makes things grow, how full the world is of things and and light and how we as humans represent that light and see and feel the world of nature that is in us as we are in it, through it and with it.
