Sitka's 2020/2021 residency program began in October when the first of 30 invited residents from diverse practices and backgrounds arrived. In this fifth Show & Tell event of the season, you will hear from:
• Howard L Mckee Ecology resident Paul Bourdeau a marine ecologist and associate professor at Humboldt State University. Paul and his students study how coastal marine organisms interact with their environment and respond to changing environmental conditions, particularly those brought about by human activities.
• Currently based in Oregon, Genevieve Rae Busby creates work that explores the interconnectedness of our material world, both natural and human-made. Throughout her practice, she insists on the importance of examining the everyday things that populate our world, of considering the strange agency of objects and our fraught - but also delightful - material relationships.
• Lisa Conway grew up outside Detroit, Michigan. She received her MFA in Ceramics from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge and her BFA in Ceramics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Lisa is currently a Professor of Art and Head of the Ceramics Area at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington, where she has taught since 2003.
• Howard L Mckee Ecology resident Kurt Fausch is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology at Colorado State University, where he taught for 35 years. His research collaborations in stream fish ecology and conservation have taken him throughout Colorado and the West, and worldwide, including to Hokkaido in northern Japan.
• Meg Ojala combines large-scale landscape photographs, drawings, and text to imbue her subjects, such as a river or a bog, with a sense of agency. She employs ambiguous spatial illusions, disorienting points of view, and a bewildering sense of scale to shift the perception of the viewer and to elicit empathy for the natural world.
Watch for more interactive opportunities to engage with Sitka's residents as the season continues.
