Geo Sapiens exhibit

Way back in March of last year I helped to pass on information about a Geologic Art Exhibit at the Two Wall Gallery in Vashon, Washington. It sounds like the show was a success with work from around 50 earth scientist from around the world being displayed this past November. You can view images of the art work that was displayed here. The image to the left is called Trilobite Coquina by Ancil Meacham. Be sure to check out all of the beautiful art that was submitted for the show.

Greg Wessel, a Geologist and co-curator of the Two Wall Gallery, mentioned that they plan to hold another exhibit in the future:

"We plan to host another exhibit of work done by geoscientists, Geo sapiens II, later this year. In addition, we hope to coordinate similar shows at other sites across the country and possibly overseas at about the same time, and so we invite you to help with that effort and assist with the advertising and organization of geo-art shows in your neighborhood. If you are interested in participating and helping with an exhibit in your neighborhood, let me know and we'll share ideas. I can say from personal experience that it's a LOT of fun and not nearly as much work as it seems. And you get to meet a mess of people in your profession and have a few beers with them! What could be better than that?"

I really hope they will have another show. I think it would be great to see some of this cool art, while also seeing more of the wonderful paleo-art that is out there also displayed!

I had a photo in this. I wish I could have made it to the opening, because it looked like it was great show. Greg did a heckuva job putting it together. On top of that someone bought my photo.

I missed it when you first posted on the exhibit. It's truly amazing. I was particularly struck by the colors and gracefulness in so many of the pieces. Art and science, a wonderful brew. Thank you.

I just stumbled upon your blog, and forgive me for gushing, but I feel like I just hit the dino blog jackpot. I have my own blog about dinosaurs in art, so when I saw this little gem of a post on your blog, I got a little excited. Anyway, just wanted to let you know I think this blog is GREAT! I'll be on the lookout for more paleo-art entries!

Hi Tony - no problem. Its a pretty cool exhibit!

Hi Jenn - glad you found my blog! I just checked out yours! Very cool! I will add a link to my blog list and spread the word! Keep up the good work!

I haven't been to the Geo Sapiens yet, but I have sent work from the UK for both exhibitions and some have been sold.

My current project is the production of silk scarves.
