Featuring: Rebecca Schultz
Rebecca Schultz will be showing her newest series of paintings at the Abington Art Center. This work is inspired by her August 2020 residency at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in the White Mountains, New Hampshire. She went into the field with scientists as they conducted their research on the relationships between the hydrology, soil composition, and geology of the forest, which included collecting hydrological data, gathering soil samples, and drilling bedrock cores.
The work on view in this exhibit draws from visual data used in the scientists’ research on the hydrology and topography of the forest, which impacts water flow; the process of water weathering bedrock; and the structure/composition of the rocks themselves. The show includes an augmented reality experience on the Artivive app, created by University of the Arts student Eden Blas.
A virtual artist talk will be held on Saturday, February 13th from 10am-12pm.
