Watershedsci

This exhibition links art practice and scientific research exploring the eco-systems of Lake Couchiching and Lake Simcoe, to generate greater understanding of water quality issues. Current scientific research taking place at Lakehead University, Orillia Campus has been the catalyst for this group exhibition of selected participants who have been given references to academic research to develop their creative response utilizing and exploring new media as well as traditional methods of art making.

The artists involved in this project are:
Travis Shilling, Joanna McEwen, Peter McEwen, Peter Miehm, Sarah Uffelman, Heather Driver Kerslake, Luci Dilkus, Roger Kerslake, Karen Wild, Tanya Cunnington, Bewabon Shilling and Jennie Clark.

Simcoe Watershed Art Project is a collaborative visual arts project with an environmental theme created to involve regional artists in the expression and documentation of the wonders within the Lakes Simcoe and Couchiching watersheds.

“It is our goal to encourage members of the community at large and the environmental research communities to realize the potential of visual art to communicate environmental concerns. Beyond recreational purposes, the watershed and the quality of water it processes are essential to life.”

Simcoe Watershed Art Project in collaboration with Lakehead University, Orillia Campus.
