Artist Talk with Karen Lené Rudd
Event will be virtual via Zoom; preregistration required. A recording of the program will be sent to all registrants.
In celebration of the Anthropocene exhibition, join Port Townsend-based artist Karen Lené Rudd to hear the stories the behind her work: the history, the science, the geography, and the circumstances that led her to create them. Hear how an archaeology dig led to an obsession with tree stumps; how calligraphy, sewing and conservation textbooks come together to create sculptural collages; and how giant miniatures made of cast-offs can put our species' impact on the planet in perspective.
Karen Lené Rudd is visual artist with a background in zoology and journalism, Karen Lené Rudd explores the relationship between people and nature through sculpture and larger installations. Her work has been shown across the Western US, including at the Museum of Northwest Art in La Conner, Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco, Whatcom Museum in Bellingham, at Bumbershoot and at Catherine Person gallery in Seattle, as well as in New York City and in Canada. She is the recipient of grants through Artist Trust, 4Culture, Centrum Foundation, Ford Motor Company and Vermont Studio Center.
