DRY MEDIA: A Herbarium Exhibition || Feb 20-Mar 4

EXHIBITION OPENING: Fri, Feb 20, 2015
7:00 Doors Open
8:30 Reading by Dry Media Artist hannah g

 

During a cold weekend in November, a group of Winnipeg artists gained access to the University of Manitoba Herbarium – a biorepository of dried, preserved plant specimens for scientific study. After exploring themes of bioart and botanical illustration through the ages, they dove into the plant collection. These artists viewed botanical specimens under microscopes, captured images with a microscope camera or camera lucida. In time, they fell under the plants’ spell… This collective experience has led to a body of botanical artwork by the following:

Becky Thiessen, Toby Gillies, Melody Morissette, Ken Gregory, Shawn Jordan, hannah g, Seth Woodyard, Jessica McKague, Julia Wake, and Lesley Nakonechny, as well as work by facilitators: Helga Jakobson, Chantal Dupas, Dawn Wood, and Diana Sawatzky.
