Earth Gallery Open Afternoons

We are pleased to announce that the University of Bristol Earth Gallery is now open to the public  every Wednesday afternoon 2-5pm. 
The artworks displayed in the Earth Gallery are part of an ongoing collaboration between University of Bristol academics and Bristol-based artists. Biannual exhibitions highlight human perceptions of and interactions with our planet, and depict global themes such as landscape formation, climate change, natural hazards and evolution.
Currently on display in the EarthGallery are artworks by Olivia Jones, a visual artist based at Spike Island Studios in Bristol. Working across various media her work explores the structural behaviour of landscapes in an endeavour to reveal unseen dimensions and develop the constructs for evolving narratives.

During her fellowship in the School of Earth Sciences Olivia worked with academics on the subject of ash analysis, building on a project she began developing last year titled, Tephra: Order in the Dust. Exploring the behaviour and materiality of ash particles, clouds and plumes, Olivia's intention was to create a body of work in conversation with academics that looks into the methodologies, technologies and interface between science and art.
