Art and science don’t often intersect, but 14 mixed-media artists found inventive ways to express the environmental significance of water in the lives of Louisianians during Ebb & Flow, a three-year resident artist series sponsored by Studio in the Woods.

Megan Singleton, Studio in the Woods’ most recent resident, presented her organic art project during an opening reception at Byrdie’s Gallery on May 10 as part of the St. Claude Arts District’s Wetlands Art Tour. The first annual art walk showcased more than 75 artists in 23 venues with the purpose of drawing attention to the issues of coastal erosion and wetlands restoration.

Carol Scott, an art professor at Our Lady of Holy Cross College who participated in the walk, found particularly interesting the “very conceptual” renderings that used actual materials gathered from the wetlands.
