When you think of GIS remote sensed images from satellites, you may not think of quilts. But artist Deb Berkebile did, and some of these most unique quilts will be on display beginning January 31st during her “Earthscapes and More” collection on display through April 20th at The West Woods Nature Center.
Refreshments will be served during the display’s opening on Friday, January 31st from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Also that evening, from 8:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., a presentation called “Science Behind the Quilts” by Bobby Oliver and Mark Guizlo from Lakeland Community College will demonstrate principles of image detection, creation and analysis that allow an artist to transform scientific output into artistic inspiration.
“Science and art meet for a unique interpretation of the world around us,” said Teresa Runion, Geauga Park District’s special events coordinator. “We really hope you can join us for the opening, or stop by before April 20th to experience this unforgettable collection.”
The West Woods is located at 9465 Kinsman Road (Route 87) in Russell Township and is fully wheelchair/stroller accessible.
