Art + Science: Works on Exhibit by Beth Appleton

November 16- December 8, 2018 at the Grand Bay Coastal Resources Center. This exhibit is FREE and open to the public during our public operation hours (M-F, 9am-3pm).

Beth Appleton is an artist currently based on the Gulf Coast in Florida. She works closely with the NERR system, particularly the Apalachicola NERR in Florida, and we are excited to have her work at the Grand Bay NERR here in Mississippi. Beth came to us about a year ago to collect plankton samples from our estuary for her artwork. She has sorted through these samples to create digital microassemblages, videos, and her signature art form- cut paper assemblages. Her work is colorful and unique, and she aims to bridge art and science with her pieces. You can find more information about Beth by visiting her website:
