Introductions: Mantis Portraits at Lauritzen Gardens

20150601-20150601_4987.jpg

Sunday June 23rd 2-4 is the opening for a show featuring 20 mantis portraits. The show is hosted by Lauritzen Gardens. If you attend the opening mention you are there for the show for free admission to the gardens. The portraits are of mantises I’ve raised over the past 7 years. They serve an introduction of the species, characters, and their anthropomorphization for the rest of the work I make on mantises. The show runs June 20th-July29th.

Don't forget the Bug Symposium is this Saturday, October 7th at OutrSpaces starting at 7pm.  The symposium is a quixotic fusion of art, music, and science with the common them of bugs.  Arthropoda will be well represented.   I will have a portion of my own personal collection on display, a table about insect photogrammetry, and some insect related art.
