Dr. John Kyndt (Associate Professor of Microbiology, Nutrition, and Sustainability and Program Director of Sustainability Management) and Professor David Joel Thomas (Assistant Professor and Program Director of Creative Arts) invited us for a short Immersion Artist Residency, as part of an ongoing Art + Science collaboration that began in July 2021 at Bellevue University with our studio. The aim of the collaboration is to advance and cultivate cross-disciplinary, transcollegial partnership, robust student engagement, public outreach, and project research.

Cheekwood Estate & Gardens in Nashville TN, May 7 – Sept 4, 2022
COLORSCAPES consists of a series of dynamic outdoor installations and gallery interventions. Set along a prescribed path, the exhibition unfolds across Cheekwood’s Bradford Robertson Color Garden, Arboretum Lawn, and Bracken Foundation Children’s Garden before moving up to the portico of the Historic Mansion & Museum and into its more intimately scaled galleries.
The contemporary understanding of color has a rich and complex history, whether through the histories of plant-based pigments like indigo, or the development of color theory through the discourses of Enlightenment-era writers, scientists, and naturalists. One of the most significant examples of the latter is the Scottish artist Patrick Syme’s Werner’s Nomenclature of Colours.First published in 1814 and based on the groundbreaking work of German geologist Abraham Gottlob Werner, the book presented a taxonomic guide to the colors of the natural world and was a precursor to the modern Pantone system. Color—and more specifically the color classified inWerner’s Nomenclature of Colours—serves as the conceptual springboard for a vibrant site-specific takeover at the Cheekwood Estate & Gardens.
The exhibitioniscurated by Marin R. Sullivan, Art Historian, Guest Curator at Cheekwood.
