Lyrics from a 2004 song by Canadian singer songwriter Martha Wainwright form the title for this exhibition of artwork from the Regina Public Library Permanent and Art Rental Collections. Wainwright’s song is an ode to the joy of youth and the power of life and captures the essence of this collection. Through a variety of methods, materials, and styles, the artists in this exhibition have presented plant life as a source of rejuvenation, knowledge, resilience, joy, nourishment, sensuality, and beauty. Much like Wainwright’s song, the artwork invites us to embrace life in all its wild and fleeting moments, which, like all things, will pass.
