February – March 2011 Marjorie Scholl, Landscapes: Marjorie Scholl’s much-anticipated solo show explores the dynamic landscapes of Kachemak Bay. In this series of large landscapes, she layers paint and uses subtle shifts in color value to depict the head of the bay to the volcanoes of the Ring of Fire. While there is no substitute for seeing these large (5.75 ft X 4 ft) canvases in person, you can view this special exhibit on line atMarjorie Scholl’s online gallery.
Few places in the world experience the tidal extremes that occur in the waters of Kachemak Bay. Twenty-two foot high tides are contrasted with minus-five foot low tidal exchanges. Whether clamming at low tide, boating safely home at high tide, or repairing a boat hull on the harbor’s dry dock, local community members need to have knowledge of the tides. Living by the Tides explores the way local identities are shaped by the forces of a dramatic, ever-changing tide.
