Opening Reception for The Curious World of Seaweed
Meet local author, photographer, and activist Josie Iselin at the opening of an exciting new exhibition of her work. Colorful, contemporary seaweed portraits combine with fascinating historical imagery to create an exhibit that takes us deep into the beauty and science of seaweed. The Curious World of Seaweed is a journey into the underrepresented stories of the marine algae, (seaweed and kelp) flourishing just under the dynamic waves of the Pacific Ocean. In The Studio, experience the artwork that inspired the research and writing of her book, and makes us appreciate these spectacular organisms of the ocean world, or found flung up on a local beach or in the tide-pools.
Light refreshments will be served; registration is required for this free event.
