Danae Wolfe @ Seiberling Gallery: Exhibition Closing and Photowalk
May 3 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Join us for the closing ceremony of Danae Wolfe’s gallery exhibition with a photowalk and discussion of photographing insects. Attendees are encouraged to bring their cameras and appropriate hiking attire. The photowalk will start in Seiberling Gallery.
About the exhibition:
Described by biologist, E.O. Wilson, as “The Little Things that Run the World,” insects and other invertebrates are among the most important creatures on Earth. From decomposition and pollination to providing a fundamental part of food webs, many of our world’s ecosystems simply cannot exist without healthy populations of invertebrates. Unfortunately, recent research shows a massive decline in invertebrate populations across the globe. Habitat fragmentation, climate change, and pesticide use are among the major culprits causing these species declines.
This exhibit of photographs by Danae Wolfe opens on Sunday, March 29 and closes on Sunday, May 3 in Seiberling Gallery, 1403 W. Hines Hill Rd., Peninsula, OH 44264.
As a conservation educator and photographer, Danae is passionate about showcasing the beauty and necessity of insects and spiders. Through photographic portraits, she creates opportunities for people to look into the eyes of little-known creatures and connect with them in ways most people never have. Her work is helping create a sense of appreciation and empathy towards insects and spiders that promotes sustainable land management decisions at home and beyond. Through her photography and social media campaigns like “Don’t Be a Grasshole” and “Nurture Your Nature,” Danae is helping to change the narrative on home landscaping to be more inclusive of the word’s littlest wildlife.
