Titled from Edgar Allan Poe’s poem The Raven, the works in this exhibition are from Sharon Field’s home studio in the rural setting of Burra, inspired by the local landscape.
They carry a message of environmental conservation, speaking of the human bond with the plants, animals and insects around us. The exhibition questions how well life around us will survive with the impact of global warming and the actions of people more generally.

Bullied for his intelligence and struggling to fit in at school, Danny is a 15-year-old genius who is always coming up with crazy inventions. When he is unexpectedly offered a scholarship to Cranston Academy, a secret, prestigious boarding school for geniuses, Danny views it as a place where his intelligence will be recognised and where he will have a chance to fit in.
Catherine McCullagh’s fictionalised history joins a swathe of current works about the WW2 European experience under the Nazis. Whilst set in a Paris cabaret, Le Prix d’Amour, it interests itself largely with how the ‘normal citizen’ coped with the many privations and difficulties of Vichy France, at the time of the German Occupation and then under its total control.
