Reflections on glacier field studies, climate history and experimental printmaking in the North Cascades
Young local printmaker Claire Waichler’s exhibition includes multimedia “scrolls” that explore evidence and ideas of climate change, exploration, glacier science, and speculative futures in the North Cascades.
Climate change impacts glaciers and ecological and human communities. The North Cascades in Washington are rich with these stories. The threads are often tied together with science, but art contains expansive possibilities too. Throughout this project Waichler interwove various ways of knowing – scientific, personal, artistic, emotional – to explore a changing place and the lives of its inhabitants.
Waichler shared three of her narrative glacier scrolls and discussed how her research, experiences and creative experimentation gave rise to them during a virtual reception.
