For the past few months, a talented group of artists and scientists have resided among the trees and wildlife to deeply explore their work as Artists and Scientists-in-Residence at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. Join us for the Resident Show & Tell – 1pm on Saturday, April 27, 2019 as our Spring residents share what they have been working on!
Tucked in the forest near Cascade Head, the Sitka Center is an ideal location for artists and scientists to withdraw from the distraction of daily life, find the solitude needed to push through their creative boundaries and chase their artistic pursuits and immerse themselves in natural study and reflection. The Sitka Center is proud to host residents in varied stages of their journeys, from Oregon and abroad.
The Resident Show & Tell is an opportunity for the community to learn about the work done by these accomplished artists and scientists. Light refreshments and presentations begin at 1pm in Boyden Studio. This event is free and open to the public. Join the Sitka Center community as we enjoy brief presentations of Residents’ work as they end their residencies.
The April 27th Resident Show & Tell includes: Fred Sharpe, ecologist investigating the behavior of humpback whales for over a quarter century, specializing on the bubble-netting of Alaskan humpbacks whales; Matt Jones, an environmentalist and a writer of both fiction and nonfiction; Daesha Devon Harris, New York native, artist and photographer with interest in stories and history; Adéla Gardavshá, a recorder player and teacher, and a culture anthropologist originally from the Czech Republic; Isabelle Hayeur, is a Montreal image-based artist with her work situated within a critical approach to the environment, urban development and to social conditions; Felix Prater, is a UK based multi-media ecological artist working in film, performance, music and installation to explore art’s power to deepen our relationships with other species, the land and nature.
