Artists from the Wilderness Art Collective present ‘Wilderness for the Mind’ and online exhibition highlighting the connection between nature and mental wellbeing at this strange and unprecedented time. The show includes paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, collage, weavings, photography, video and installation. There will be daily interviews, studio visits and artist demonstrations.
Our courageous, experimental explorer artists whose life experiences inform their works vary in extremity in their desire to connect fully with nature: wild swimming, parascending, mountaineering and extreme sailing. During Lockdown, many of the artists have found new sources of inspiration in their local environments – offering mindfulness meditations and walks in nature specifically recorded for this exhibition.
