Rusten House Art Centre presents an exhibition by sculptor David Smith.

Endangered - illustrates through sculpture, Australian native animals - that due to climate change, habitat loss, urban encroachment and introduced pests – are threatened, vulnerable or endangered.

David Smith resides in the regional town of Queanbeyan, NSW, where he crafts an eclectic range of sculptures from reclaimed steel and other materials. His works are designed to instigate laughter or contemplation, and capitalise on his aptitude for engaging audiences through humour and intellect. After a career in the sciences, David now dedicates himself full time to his sculptures. His current exhibition explores the topic of adverse human impact on the environment, as seen through the eyes of some of the most iconic animals. The exhibition is a reminder that we need to do more to protect the fragile world … for ourselves and for the other species that we share it with.

Endangered is David’s second solo exhibition at Rusten House, with a percentage of the sales from this exhibition being donated to Queanbeyan Wildcare, for the care and medical treatment of injured native wildlife.

Rusten House Art Centre is open Wednesday - Saturday.
