Maggie Kelly is an artist and activist who uses images, words and objects to explore the relationship between environmental and social justice. This exhibition has developed out of her a longstanding commitment to ecological and social justice, and lifelong passion for the wisdom of trees.  The exhibition will include a mix of paintings, prints and photography.

The accompanying artist talks draw on some of her recent research into the science of the wood wide web and what it may teach us about alternatives to capitalism and mass extinctions. It began life as a talk for Extinction Rebellion Scotland’s Conference of Climate Reality, as part of International Rebellion Week in April this year.

Here’s a wee message from the artist Maggie Kelly

“Why trees vs capitalism? Because the rise of right wing turbo capitalism and the destruction of our environment are intimately connected.”

“What does a stone circle on Bute, commercial forestry, climate breakdown and mass extinctions have to do with one another? Come along to my exhibition and talks to find out.”
