Back to  (main site)

I started this gallery after a long gap in posting images: I hadn’t posted any on since around 2004, when I launched Imatest. The motivation was my 2016 show at NCAR (the National Center for Atmospheric Research) in Boulder.

I had nine images on display at the Boulder Jewish Community Center from September 1 through November 30, 2022. The September 7 opening was delightful. 

The show has been installed.

Thanks to Joy Eisenhauer
and Andrew Beck

25 additional prints (and a few prints from the show) remain on display at the Imatest offices at 2525 Frontier Ave. in Boulder (facing Pearl Parkway, one block west of Foothills Parkway). To view the prints, please email me or call me at my mobile number, 720-985-9610.

According to this article from The Atlantic, science is still learning about lichens, and has a long way to go.

About the artist

Images from the NCAR show, which was up from Aug 1 to Sept 30, 2016.

The NCAR/UCAR Community art program seems to have fallen victim to COVID.
