On exhibit at Central Library, August – September 2015
Reception: Saturday, Aug. 8 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m., First Floor Meeting Room.
Naturalist/photographer Judy Gallagher and visual artist Steve Crossett explore the beauty and variety of the insect world through macro photography and charcoal and pastel renderings.
Judy’s photography displays in breathtaking detail the amazing structures, colors, and behaviors of these important creatures. Steve uses Judy’s photographs as the basis for his charcoal and pastel drawings. He makes these drawings on crumpled newspaper mounted on foam core. Many of the newspaper pages he uses have stories and/or images related to insects, ecology, and our natural world.
Together they hope to bring awareness to the world around us in its many small and often unnoticed varieties. Through a greater appreciation of the beauty of these creatures, we can start to grasp their critical importance.
