Tidal Response: Coastal Marin Environments from Above and Below

Opening Reception:  August 19, 5 – 7pm

Exhibition Dates:  August 22 – October 21

Join us for new art exhibition, Tidal Response at the Petaluma Arts Center, which explores the intersection of art and science through a series of responses to coastal environments, with particular emphasis on Sonoma County. Some of these marine impressions are more literal– in Peter Connors’ case, displaying formerly living sea creatures as a medium in his delicate algae pressings; in Chris Dewees’ case, using sea inhabitants as part of his actual process of Gyotaku printing. Other works are more conceptual, as Richard and Judith Selby Lang repurpose objects found at the water’s edge to express both environmental philosophy and sense of place. Learn More
