The work is a narrow passageway that wraps around an existing room, combining colored fluorescent light and closed-circuit video to manipulate the viewer’s perceptual experience. An adjacent gallery includes artworks that situate the corridor within the artist’s career.

Nutria in California: Current Status and Response @ Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters

Nutria in California: Current Status and Response @ Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters | Davis | California | United States
7:00 pm
Yolo Basin Foundation’s Flyway Nights speaker series will explore one of the Central Valley’s invasive mammals. Martha Volkoff will discuss “Nutria in California: Current Status and Response” on Thursday, April 4 at 7 p.m. at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters in south Davis. Nutria (Myocastor coypus) is a species of aquatic rodent native to South America. Previously thought to have been eradicated from California, a population of nutria was found in Merced County in 2017, and since found in five other Counties in the San Joaquin Valley. Nutria can degrade the integrity of levees due to burrowing. They also are intensive herbivores that can destroy native plant populations and wetland habitats leaving behind exposed soils and open water. Martha Volkoff will provide details of the current status and extent of the nutria population in California as well as what steps are being taken to control this destructive invasive. Martha Volkoff is the Invasive Species Program Manager at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. Martha has a B.S. and M.S. in Conservation Biology. Flyway Nights is a monthly speaker series highlighting environmental issues, natural history of Northern California and current research topics in conservation. Yolo Basin Foundation hosts Flyway Nights the first Thursday of the month from November to April at the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters, 45211 County Road 32B (Chiles Road). A $5 donation to support the Foundation’s wetland education programs is suggested. Yolo Basin Foundation members are free. For the complete schedule and more information, visit www.yolobasin.org/flywaynights or call Yolo Basin Foundation at (530) 757-3780.

Nature Printing with Fish: Gyotaku Workshop @ Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters
Apr 6 @ 9:00 am – 2:30 pm
Nature Printing with Fish: Gyotaku Workshop @ Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters | Davis | California | United States
9:00 am
“Every type of fish is unique and requires a different approach. I like to emphasize the structure and movement of the fish.” ~ Chris Dewees This hands-on workshop will emphasize the direct method of fish printing. Inks are applied directly to the fish and then transferred directly with your hands onto paper or fabric. All materials will be supplied, but participants are welcome to bring their own fabric, paper or fish for printing. Fish and small octopus will be provided to print. By the end of this fun day, participants should have a stack of finished prints to take home as well as the knowledge to keep printing. No previous experience is necessary. All materials and lunch are included with each workshop. Chris Dewees has focused on Japanese fish printing, or gyotaku, since 1968, and is a co-founder of the Nature Printing Society. He has gained worldwide recognition for his talents with shows all over the world, and enjoys teaching others this Japanese art. His modern take on the art form blends his knowledge of fisheries and ecology to document the life histories of fish species. Chris has a newly published book, “A Life Among Fishes – the Art of Gyotaku”. This book shares fifty years of his experiences and adventures with images of his gyotaku art and photos from his life. Visit deweesnaturedesigns.com and his Facebook page to learn more about Chris’ fish printing.

Nature Printing with Plants Workshop @ Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters
Apr 20 @ 9:00 am – 2:30 pm
Nature Printing with Plants Workshop @ Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Headquarters | Davis | California | United States
9:00 am
“I don’t touch fish, so I was delighted to discover that the method worked for printing flowers and plants as well.” ~ Christy Dewees Nature printing with plants has European roots and was often used to identify plants before offset printing and photography were available. Christy Dewees has always loved plants. She has a degree in Botanical illustration and a certificate in Graphic Design. As an enthusiastic naturalist, Christy has often shared her passion for plants with people visiting the UC Davis Arboretum. She was drawn into nature printing when she accompanied her husband, Chris, to one of the early Nature Printing Society annual meetings, on Catalina Island, in 1989. She was so inquisitive and engaged that the workshop coordinator declared, “Christy, you’re just going to have to become a member!” At each annual workshop since then, she tries new techniques, taught by other members, but before exploring alternatives, one should learn the basics. With basics in mind, participants will learn plant printing techniques on paper and then on fabric as well as information about local plants. All the printing materials and lunch will be supplied. You are encouraged to bring any leaves (preferably relatively flat and textured or prominently veined, not slick) as well as any fabric items (shirts, canvas bags, dish towels, etc) you may want to print on. At the end of the day, you will have many plant prints to take home. No previous experience is necessary. Visit deweesnaturedesigns.com for more information about Christy’s plant printing and illustration.
