92nd ANNUAL solo exhibitions: Daniel W. Coburn: Becoming a Specter Julie Anne Greenberg: Considerable Uncertainty Remains Jacob Koestler: Copy of a Copy are on view through August 4, 2018. This project is an extension of my examination of the family photo album. In “Becoming a Specter” I make images in an effort to describe the anxiety and psychological estrangement one experiences during times of political and social unrest. I think of this project as a form of aesthetic defiance. It is my goal to expand the perimeter of visual ephemera that might be considered for new iterations of the family album. - Daniel W.

“The research is important not only for a better understanding of the role each species of fly plays in the ecosystem at large, but for getting a larger picture of biodiversity and extinction rates.” http://bit.ly/2Ge9OiZ

    'Astounding' survey of fly species suggests we might be underestimating global biodiversity | CBC News
    A University of Calgary entomologist recently participated in a landmark study that revealed just how much we don't know about the number and variety of species that inhabit our planet. John Swann was one of 59 biologists who spent one year collecting flies from a four-hectare patch of cloud forest in Costa Rica.

“The species hails from a time in the Cretaceous period, between 100 and 66 million years ago, when birds were in the process of losing many of the traits inherited from their dinosaur forebears and evolving into the winged, feathered creatures we know today.” http://bit.ly/2GdjSbS

    Dinosaur-Era Bird Found With Shockingly Intact Skull
    A delicate but remarkably well-preserved fossil skull is providing new clues to how birds evolved from their dinosaur ancestors. The first known fossil of the ancient bird Ichthyornis was unearthed in 1870 in Kansas, under the direction of legendary fossil-hunter Othniel Charles Marsh.
