WORKSHOP: Insects Magnified with Kelly Eckel

at City of Albuquerque Open Space Visitor Center
6500 Coors NM, Albuquerque, Free
Open Tue-Sun, 9am-5pm

June 1-October 1
Artist and educator Kelly Eckel takes photographs of magnified insects as part of her process of combining these parts into hybrid compositions. The magnified images of insect wings, hair and eyes are wonderful in and of themselves. For this small exhibit in the Window Room, Eckel has shown some of her new work from this series.

Saturday, September 9, 10am-noon
Kelly Eckel offered a workshop for kids and families in which she taught about insects and their role in nature and pollination. Children had the opportunity to look at pollinator insects close up and magnified with a variety of tools in order to learn more about how insects function in their natural world.

This event was held in conjunction with Cross Pollination, an exhibit at 516 ARTS, curated by Valerie Roybal, on view August 19 - November 11, 2017.
