This unseasonal theme during the UK summer, inspired the title 'Snow in Summer', and asks each artist to push the boundaries of their practice, conjuring representations of what 'winter' means to them. The project is supported by Gotham Studios. Gotham Studios is proud to be a partner of the City of Perth Winter Arts Season.

"As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool."
 
We know that snow in summer is completely out of place and rain in harvest can ruin the crop. We know that it is completely out of place for a fool to be honored.
 
These damaging incongruities of nature illustrate those in the moral realm.
