Two of the artists featured in the Fires of Change exhibition will present unique insight into this project and wildfire. Patrons will learn about the Fire Science Bootcamp that the 11 artists attended in fall 2014 and how it impacted their art for this exhibition.
In this presentation, part three of the Fire Science and Art Series, artists Brian David Griffith (pictured) and Katharina Roth will give presentations about their art and approach to the Fires of Change exhibition.
Bryan David Griffith’s work is held in public and private collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the University of Michigan Museum of Art, the Center for Creative Photography, and the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. His solo exhibitions include the Griffin Museum of Photography (Boston), Galerie BMG (Woodstock, NY), Open Shutter Gallery (Durango, CO), Translations Gallery (Denver), and the Shanghai International Photo Festival (China).
Katharina Roth is a ceramic artist currently attending Northern Arizona University. She was recently featured in the exhibition, Third Side of the Coin, at the Flagstaff Modern & Contemporary Art Gallery.
