Artist talk July 19

Ashley Cecil's artist talk, July 19, 2018

If you weren’t at the opening reception of my exhibition Edged Out, you missed one hell of a celebration. Over 250 art and nature lovers packed the world-renowned Frick Environmental Center to see how art inspired by science can be a powerful conduit to knowledge.

On July 19 at 7PM, I hope you’ll come learn about my immersive six-month residency at the Richards-Zawacki Lab during an artist talk at the Frick Environmental Center. Both the principle investigator of the lab, Cori Richards-Zawacki, and I will be giving a light-hearted presentation about our collaboration (no PhD in biology required). You’ll get a taste of Cori’s scientific research and how that work inspired the paintings and sculptures in the exhibition.

If you’re not able to attend the talk or see the exhibition, you can view the available artwork here. You also can learn about the project through the wonderful press coverage we garnered – my interview on the environmental radio show The Allegheny Front is possibly my favorite.
