Event Description

Edged Out is a series of paintings and sculptural works on the human influence on nature. This art by Ashley Cecil specifically focuses on the vulnerable state of amphibians, a modern canary in the coal mine offering us a prophetic glance at what lies ahead for all inhabitants of an ailing environment.

These artworks are visual translations of research conducted by the Richards-Zawacki Herpetology Lab at the University of Pittsburgh. During her six-month artist residency at the lab, Ashley immersed herself in scientific topics represented in this exhibition, such as habitat loss, disease and conservation methods.
