Collections of an Unseen World“, Multimedia including digital, watercolor, gouache, pencil and ink

Jeremy Cagle’s “Collections of an Unseen World” art show is on display in the nature center’s education wing. Visitors can also enjoy the nature center’s Field Station hands-on exhibit hall, Wildlife Observation Room, and Nature Store gift shop where items from other local artists are for sale.

Artist Statement: What happens when stories of the present become tales of the past? With the rapid changes in our world’s ecosystems, some species are finding it hard to keep up. In a future where memory will be our only way to communicate the rich history of wildlife, the artist imagines how tales of the “unseen world” may portray different species. His childlike fascination with insects and their incredible diversity inspires his drive to record and catalog them. This multi-media art exhibition includes references to real life with vivid alterations that show how memory can fade or change a subject over time.
