On Friday 24 July at 5pm, Anne Roolaht will open her exhibition COME TO THE WOODS. GO TO THE WOODS. BE IN THE WOODS. IN THE WOODS. With the exhibition, Roolaht calls to offer attention to the companion species of humans. The exhibition will be on display until 15 August.

Anne Roolaht: The woods and its creatures are a part of us, they are our kin – we cannot do without them. We have to care for our close ones.

During the recent years, I have dedicated my jewellery to the protection of endangered species. Wolves, white-tailed eagles, bears, deer, flying squirrels and other animals are represented in my works because I want to bring them to attention, to protect them in my own fashion.

With this exhibition, I present new works of silver jewellery with precious stones.

To accompany the jewellery, I am presenting my graduation work tutored by Heinz Valk – a cast bronze table. From the same period, but already after the graduation from the Academy of Arts, I am displaying etched nickel silver brooches.

I have prepared this exhibition with great joy. Of course, the creative process has included distress and arguing with myself, but altogether it has been an exciting walk.
