Leah Wilson’s solo exhibition of work from the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest since 2012 titled, Leah Wilson: Collecting Evanescence - Six Years at the Andrews, will be seen at Joan Truckenbrod PopUp Gallery in Corvallis, OR. The exhibition opens October 6 and runs through October 27, 2018, with a reception for the artist Saturday, October 6th from 4:00pm to 6pm, and an artist’s talk at 4:30pm. The artist will also be present during Corvallis’ Third Thursday Art Walk October 18, 2018.
Leah Wilson holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the San Francisco Art Institute and a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Art Institute of Southern California. A 2012 artist residency at the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest in the Oregon Cascades introduced her to ecologists working on long-term studies in the forest. Wilson’s interaction with the forest and its associated ecologists led her to realize that science in general, and ecology in particular, seeks to identify patterns (and changes in patterns) over time. Often, in terms of process and product, the most evident element of her work is repetition, rhythm, and pattern related to water in general, and rivers and streams in particular.
