Radius Gallery's next exhibition takes its inspiration from nature's serenity, vitality and capacity for renewal, with new artworks by Brooke Borcherding, Tabby Ivy, Michael Kline, Louise Lamontagne and Bobbie McKibbin.
The title of the exhibition is derived from the Wendell Berry poem of the same name:
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
