Botanical Exhibit Lecture – June 24 @ Noon

Join us on Thursday, June 24 at noon, for a lunchtime talk given by Tim Frerichs.  Mr. Frerichs is an artist and Associate Professor of Art at SUNY Fredonia.  His work has been widely exhibited, including the Western New York Book Arts Collaborative, Everson Art Museum, and an upcoming exhibit at Centro Internazionale Della Grafica, in Venice, Italy.  Currently, Linnaeus’ Garden Walk, a film by Frerichs, as well as a selection of his artwork, is featured as part of our exhibit In the Garden: The Art of Botanical Illustration.

Frerichs describes his artistic process:

My artwork involves questioning of established approaches for or representing nature. As an element of my working methodology, I gather and record site-specific objects found during my walk of the site. I strive to create a visual dialogue examining how collecting and collection processes (whether scientific or cultural) represent our perceptions of the natural world. I am especially interested in how these perceptions change.
