‘Return to Forever’ is a body of mixed media and installation works by Charlotte Sayer that draws attention to the plight of the world’s dwindling fauna.
It will open to the public on 16 November and be on exhibit until 10 December.
Charlotte brings to this exhibition a global flavour with a local taste.
Having grown up in London where she first became aware of social issues including fair play, Charlotte gives creative voice to the issues faced by Australia’s fauna and species of the world.
She aims to turn pessimistic thinking into actions of optimism, as well as fostering a space for dialogue and awareness around extinction in a time of global warming and environment depletion.
Ross Mathers will accompany Charlotte in this exhibition with a selection of wire sculptured fauna.
Return to Forever will be officially opened on Friday 17 November from 6 -8 pm.
Charlotte Sayer will be discussing her creative adventures from the swinging Sixties London art student who worked and taught in Europe and America, working in the areas of social justice and welfare to retirement in Kyogle and how the stories remain the same, but the outlook can be changed.
