Exhibition and Shows

2 Mar 2019 to 5 May 2019

In the Valley is an exhibition that highlights the beauty and fragility of our natural environment on the Mornington Peninsula. Observing and documenting the changing landscape of the Kangerong Basin, Mt Martha, Somers and Port Philip Bay, artists Rosie Weiss, Jean Langley, Merryn Lloyd and Siri Hayes reveal their personal connections to the landscape, and the strong links to place that exists across generations.

Incorporated into the exhibition will be a series of climate data visualisations inspired by the exhibition artworks, which showcase the environmental evolution over south eastern Australia. Colours are extracted and translated from selected In the Valley artworks, which are incorporated into the data visualisations of environmental change from early 1900 through to future climate projections.

This exhibition is presented as part of Climarte’s Art+Climate=Change Festival – a festival of curated exhibitions and events which provides a platform for the discussion of the challenges, opportunities, impacts, and solutions associated with climate change.

This project coincides with the Mornington Peninsula Shire moving towards zero net carbon emissions across all its operations by 2021 and supporting long-term climate change resilience across the community.
