Gathered From The Field
We are pleased to present a virtual art exhibit from PSBA Member
September 10, 2020, 4:00 – 5:30 PM
Suze Woolf: Bark Beetle Book Volume XXVII: Survivorship
In this virtual exhibit, Suze Woolf will present her part in the exhibit, “Gathered from the field: art provoked by climate research”, which was installed in mid-March 2020 at University of Puget Sound’s Kittredge Gallery. As of early August, it’s still there. By the time of the intended opening on March 26, the coronavirus had shut down all events and facilities.
Much climate research has concerned atmospheric data contained in glacial ice. The exhibit featured a major installation by artist Anna McKee following her many years of field collaboration with glaciologists. It also featured 30 of Suze Woolf’s artist books made from bark-beetle-damaged wood. Like retreating ice, bark beetle outbreaks are a consequence of rising temperatures. Similarly, she has been working with foresters and entomologists for years.
