Cascadia: A More-Than-Human Experience

September 1--October 27, 2023
Open for First Fridays, September 1, and October 6, 5:00-7:00 p.m.

The MAC Gallery opens its 2023/24 season with a powerful exhibition of art and poetry from the new book, Cascadia Field Guide: Art, Ecology, Poetry, a unique collection which brings together art, poetry, and stories holding scientific, sensory and cultural knowledge to celebrate and illuminate our bioregion. The book was co-edited by WVC Professor, Derek Sheffield, who is also co-curating the exhibition.
Professor Sheffield said, "After five years of work, we are incredibly grateful that Cascadia Field Guide seems to be having a cultural moment. Since its release on March 1st, it has consistently made the Pacific Northwest Bookseller's Association bestseller list and is already into its second printing. We are also hearing that it is being used as a text at colleges, universities, and eco education organizations throughout the region."
