Paintings by Stamps lecturer Cathy VanVoorhis are on view at the North Campus Research Complex’s Rotunda Gallery (2800 Plymouth Rd., Building 18) through May 3, 2020 in a solo exhibition entitled Forest and Shores of Northern Michigan – A summer at the University of Michigan Biological Station.
VanVoorhis was an artist in residence at the University of Michigan Biological Station (UMBS) during the summer 2019. The UMBS provides students and faculty the opportunity to study environmental science in the field, alongside some of the world’s most respected experts. Including cultural experts, through a residency program, in the mix provided a perfect bridge between the arts and sciences.
There will be an artist reception for the exhibition on Friday, February 7, 5 pm - 7 pm. The NCRC is open to the general public Mondays-Fridays, 9 am-5:30 pm.
This exhibition celebrates the NCRC Art program commitment to highlighting the intersection between the arts and science, and our belief that scientists and artists have the shared a common ability to look at the world and solve problems in very similar way; both pursue research through close observation and thoughtful analysis and translate their observation into actionable shared knowledge. The end product may be different, but both scientists and artists seek, sort and react to the data using similar methodologies.
