Message to the Earth is our annual John Muir Exhibition to be held at Dunbar Town House Gallery throughout September and October 2021.
Invited artists will be Robert Powell with selected environmental works by other artists from across the country from: Judy Parrot, Leonie Mhari, Susie Leiper, Sarah Bold, Frazer Morton and Emily Joy.
Natalie Taylor will involve you in the production of an art work for Cop26. This will also become part of the Pilgrimage that will start in Dunbar on 17th October with a number of special workshops, events and speakers. These will take place across the town in Lauderdale Park for children’s events, a Slow Sensory walk from John muir’s Birthplace, down to the harbour for music and environmental readings along with Natalie Taylors performance, then walk with LED Lights to Belhaven Church Hall for Pilgrims soup and an evening talk.
The exhibition seeks to speak to your inner emotions, raising issues about the ever more evident effects of global warming and the fragility of the earth. We also plan for it to act as a catalyst, to encourage active work towards the sustainability of our locality, of nature and of us and the world we call home.
