Members in Exhibitions

Anne Warburton:
Art meets science in an upcoming show titled Creative Reactions, on May 25. It's a show of art created by 8 artists who were paired up with academic researchers and based on themes such as the human body, galaxies, society, etc. Creative Reactions explores the relationships between art and science, the use of creativity, art as a method for learning, as a means for visual communication.

Creative Reactions

I was paired up with a botanist from the Museum of Nature - and we decided on an art piece of lichens and learning. Some of you saw a few of the fibre art lichens I'm working on at our April meeting.

The show is Saturday, May 25, from 6:30 - 9:30 pm, in the Preston Room of the Plant Recreation Centre at 930 Somerset Streets West. The event is free. I am putting together a 3-part blog piece at annewarburton.blogspot.com/ to document the process, in case you are unable to attend. Hope to see you there.
