Carol Wallace: ‘Give or Take a Few Million Years’ exhibition

November 18, 2023 - February 24, 2024

$6 – $8

Geology is like time travel. Rocks are visible evidence of earlier worlds going back more than 4 billion years. Atmospheres were created, oceans opened and closed, mountains were formed and eroded, and microorganisms evolved to a world we know today. We are all embedded in deep time.

Give or Take a Few Million Years invites the viewer to experience a visual anthology of stories found in the rocks. Geologic imagery is stitched and inked on layers of silk organza, magnified minerals of local bedrock are projected onto the gallery wall, biomorphic shapes are sculpted onto fractured rock, and ink drawings remind us that a rock is much more than its exterior surface.

Give or Take… runs November 18 2023 to February 24 2024 at the Nelson Museum, Archives & Gallery.
