Pandora’s Trojan Horse: Exploring Issues around Climate Change

Archive Exhibits

November 03 to 28, 2017

Internationally Award Winning local artist Margot Cormier Splane explores the high environmental cost of industrial growth in her series of acrylic paintings and hand-pulled serigraphs. Central to her works is the figure of Pandora’s Trojan Horse, portrayed as a horse with the horns and tail of a devil with a map of the world on its torso, a symbol of the hidden danger of progress and development. Each painting and serigraph in the series looks at an individual area of environmental concern. The artist performs extensive research on each topic and through her artwork, seeks to invite audiences into a conversation about environmental preservation and the future of our planet.

“With this series I am adding my voice to the growing number of scientists and other concerned people, who are thinking about the long term future, rather than just about the next quarter, or the next election. I aspire to add to the cumulative voice of Art for a Positive Change.” – Margot Cormier Splane
