Fourth Coast Illuminated exhibit

June 4, 2014

This summer my work will be part of a juried exhibit of natural science illustration at the Kalamazoo Nature Center titled “Fourth Coast Illuminated.” The title refers to the fact that all of the works feature subjects found in the Great Lakes Region. All participants are members of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators. I entered three works: A snail shell, a fish, and this reconstruction of a First Nations settlement along Ontario’s Grand River:

View this earlier post for more information about the illustration and how it was used. I created the image using graphite and digital color.

The exhibit runs from July 1 to August 30, 2014.

Update: You can now see the 4th Coast works online here. Scroll down to the Gallery Guide.

Update: There is a now a promotional image for this exhibit:

      Thank you Karen. I did not enter this year’s GNSI Conference exhibit.
