This artist talk will center around photography as evidence and scientific data — and how the act and process of photography is an excuse to look at, study deeply, and devote time to subjects. Using examples from Special Collections as well as images of her recent works, Melissa Penley Cormier will discuss how art and science inform and inspire each other in her own work as well as others’.

summer work

Super excited to announce that some of my new work is featured in the August 2015 issue of The Light Ekphrastic. I was partnered with a glorious writer, Catherine Moore, to create something wonderful. Her writing was exactly the companion I needed this summer. Please enjoy these and the other artist/writer pairs found in this month’s (as well as the archived issues of) The Light Ekphrastic.
