EXHIBITION

Rigged

Julie Sperling

Opening reception March 1, 2024 | 7-9pm

Rigged is a show about climate change, as told through the language of contemporary mosaic art. It transforms ordinary materials, like stone, plastic, metal, and glass, to tell the story of the people and systems who are truly to blame for the climate emergency we are living in. This show is the latest in Sperling’s decade-long body of work devoted to exploring the big environmental issues of our time.

The Loch Doon area was memorialized in celebrated Scottish poet, Robert Burns piece “Ye banks and braes O’ bonnie Doon”

Ye banks and braes o’ bonny Doon,
How can ye bloom sae fresh and fair?
How can ye chant, ye little birds,
And I sae weary fu’ o’ care?
Thou’lt break my heart, thou warbling bird,
That wantons thro’ the flowering thorn:
Thou minds me o’ departed joys,
Departed, never to return.

Aft hae I rov’d by bonnie Doon,
To see the rose and woodbine twine;
And ilka bird sang o’ its love,
And fondly sae did I o’ mine.
Wi’ lightsome heart I pu’d a rose,
Fu’ sweet upon its thorny tree;
And my fause lover stole my rose,
But, ah! he left the thorn wi’ me.
