The LOVING EARTH PROJECT celebrates people, places, creatures, and other things that we love but which are threatened by growing environmental breakdown. It offers a way in which to help people engage with the issues without being overwhelmed.

Climate break-down and species extinctions are happening all over the world.
We hope this  project will inspire people to make connections and change our habits, to live more sustainably for the sake of love. The environmental crises will not go away with Coronavirus, and this project offers ways in which to be creative and constructive, even when forced to isolate.

Individuals and groups are invited to explore how the future of something, someone, or somewhere that we love is affected by our own actions.
Responses to this invitation, using textiles, are displayed in this exhibition - but it is an ongoing exploration which you can be a part of: by working on your own panel or responding on one of our postcards.
Pick one up when you come and visit and see it incorporated into the whole - both here at Riverhouse and at other exhibitions around the country.

This exhibition will display the over eighty widely varying textile panels which have now been made for the project, some of them by local Walton residents.

A free Creative Writing workshop with Poet Kathleen Bell will be hosted by the gallery as part of the exhibition on Wednesday 11 August 2.30pm - 4.30pm
