July 1, 6 PM: Free presentation at St. John’s Sanctuary
July 2, 10 AM – 5 PM: Wood’s Hall (rain: St. John’s Basement)
Sherri Lynn Wood, an internationally-known textile and quilt artist, will offer a presentation open to the community July 1st at 6 pm at St John’s Church Sanctuary where she will share her experience as an Artist in Residence at Recology San Francisco. Recology provides the collection and disposal of municipal solid waste, recycling, and compost with the mission to shift from traditional waste management to resource recovery. The Artist in Residence program offered Sherri Lynn Wood an unique art and education experience giving her access to discarded items and studio space. Quoting from a press release:
During her residency, Sherri Lynn Wood has focused on the concept of “making do” as a creative strategy for survival after system collapse. Wood stresses the potential power in this practice—not merely learning to use what one has to get by, but instead activating a level of creativity that may only be possible when we are freed from unlimited choice. Trusting that the dump pile will provide, and accepting the limitations it sets, Wood has constructed a series of quilts that are connected to this art form’s roots in scarcity.
On the day following her presentation (July 2nd), a drop-in, Reimagine workshop will be held between 10 am and 5 pm outside of Woods Hall (rain location St. John’s Basement) hosted by Mary Whittaker. Prior to the workshop, community members are invited to shop at Island Closet (located at the Materials Recovery Facility grounds) or their own closets to find items that might be destined for the landfill to bring to the workshop. There, they will learn to reimagine and remake them into a new useful item. Things to consider might be jeans, shirts, clothes, linens, napkins, table coverings, sheets, fabric, etc. Basic sewing tools, sewing machines, and irons will be provided at the workshop. No previous sewing experience required – just your creativity!
The community will have an opportunity to display their creations for viewing during an exhibit hosted at St John’s Church during the month of September. Information for participating in the exhibit will be available at the workshop and on social media.
Questions contact Mary Whittaker firstname.lastname@example.org.
This project is supported by a grant from the LaPointe Center, which has received its funding from the people of this community, the Wisconsin Arts Board, and the State of Wisconsin.

Drawing Water: Art and Science Intern
The University of Wisconsin, Madison at Trout Lake Station (TLS) in Boulder Junction, Wisconsin, along with partners at the Lac du Flambeau Tribal Natural Resources Department (LDFTNR) and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Northern Highland Fishery Research Area (WDNR) seek three interns to participate in a full-time, summer long, art and science collaboration focused on the multiple ways that art can be used to interpret local science focused on our waterways. Interns will work within a community of interacting artists and scientists but their direct work will take place within one of three partnerships:
Lac du Flambeau Tribal Natural Resources Department & Artist Adam Swanson
LDFTNR scientist Celeste Hockings and artist Adam Swanson are seeking an intern who is invested in understanding how science is conducted with the goal of protecting important tribal resources. This position will offer opportunities for wetland delineation, aquatic plant identification, and mapping. Adam is a painter and muralist who paints about the complex ecological challenges we face in our relationships to the land, water, and animals that make our area so precious. Adam is ready to mentor an intern who is enthusiastic about using environmental research to make informed and engaging artworks.
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Northern Highland Fisheries Research Area & Artist Mindy Schnell
WDNR scientists Greg Sass and Steph Shaw and artist Mindy Schnell are seeking an intern that is excited to engage in activities related to fisheries research. This position will offer a chance for hands-on experience on the water where the intern will learn scientific processes in the field and work to translate their new knowledge to art. Research themes may include, aquatic habitat, interactions between fishes and anglers, climate change adaptation, and the long history of whole lake studies and how that plays into the science we do. Mindy’s art interest is in painting, drawing, and mixed media art. Mindy is comfortable in mentoring an intern in any two-dimensional art.
University of Wisconsin, Madison’s Trout Lake Station and Artist Terrill Knaack
TLS scientist Susan Knight and artist Terrill Knaack are seeking an intern who is ready to jump in and gain new experiences. Susan’s current research focuses on understanding the decline of wild rice in local waterways and the intern will have an opportunity to participate in this research and enjoy the striking transformation of a wild rice population through the season. The intern will also have a chance to explore and be inspired by the function and beauty of aquatic plants in our local lakes and wetlands. There will also be many opportunities to interact with other researchers on station through the summer. Terrill’s art interests are varied and comprise many different media types, including painting, printing, and furniture. Terrill is ready to mentor any artist who is enthusiastic to engage at the art and science boundary.
The goal of the art and science collaboration is to demonstrate the beauty of the natural world and the scientific process; bridge communication and interest for varied groups of people; and encourage the next generation to link art and science to generate a richer and wider value system. We welcome applications from students coming from artistic and/or scientific backgrounds that are excited to work at this interface.
Location and Housing:
This position is located at the Center for Limnology’s Trout Lake Station in Boulder Junction, WI in northern Wisconsin. Dormitory style housing (not food) is provided free of charge. Enjoy swimming, hiking, fishing, biking and shoreline campfires while gaining valuable experience!
How to apply:
Student artists age 18 or older working in 2 and 3 dimensional media, musicians, performance artists and creative writers are encouraged to apply. All work must be original, no commercial molds, patterns, kits or laser prints will be accepted.
Submissions should include:
