In the Field: Exhibition Tour and Outdoor Sketch Class

Saturday, September 15  
1 pm – 4 pm

Begin in the Hazel Wolf Gallery to learn about Cunningham’s work. Then travel to Tilden Park to learn how to observe and sketch nature in the field, studying the methods of traditional oil painters and using modern techniques of scientific illustration to visually reconstruct landscapes from the past. Discover clues to natural history – native bunchgrasses, birds, signs of deer – and how landforms have changed in the last 200 years. Then record your own observations in notes and sketches.

Space is limited to 20 people. RSVP required.

Thursday, November 8, 2012
6:30 pm – 9 pm

Lecture by Bernie Krause          7 pm – 8 pm
Book Signing in the Gallery       8 pm – 9 pm

Musician, author and soundscape expert Bernie Krause discusses the connection between wild, natural soundscapes and human music, a concept explored in his acclaimed new book "The Great Animal Orchestra: Finding the Origins of Music in the World’s Wild Places."   Krause documents – through sound – what’s lost in nature when ecosystems change, a counterpoint to Cunningham's visual documentation of similar changes.
