Terradise Nature Center
March brings us not only these delightfully mercurial turns of weather, but also an exciting new cohort of artists for our Terradise Environmental Arts Residency: traditional outdoor folklife artist Jonathan Campbell (from right down the road: on the Morrow County side of Caledonia) & poet/photographer/multi-disciplinary artist Chelsea Dipman (resident of Columbus & K-5 art teacher at Garfield Elementary School in Marion) join us as our March Artists-in-Residence! Made possible by the generous support of a Community Project Grant from the Arts Resiliency Initiative of the Ohio Arts Council, the Terradise Environmental Arts Residency brings talented North-Central Ohio artists from, living in, or working in Marion & Morrow Counties to Terradise Nature Center for a month, to create artwork inspired by our property, our flora & fauna, & the history, legacy, & mission of Terradise & its founders: poet Ray Romine & writer, photographer, filmmaker & conservationist Trella Romine.
We’re featuring short interviews with our March artists-in-residence in this issue, so make sure to check below to get to know these fantastic artists & their unique environmental practices! And make sure to mark your calendars for our March Artists’ Event … to be held, scandalously (we know, we know) on Sunday, April 3rd, from 2-4PM. Chelsea Dipman will offer a workshop on haiku-writing & mindfulness from 2-3PM, & directly following, from 3-4PM, Jonathan Dipman will offer a workshop & demonstration on fly tying (for fishing) with reclaimed feathers & fur from native animal species found right here in Marion County! We’re thrilled for the way both artists are mobilizing the place & materials of Terradise to showcase long-standing & powerful environmental arts traditions from near & far, & we’d love to have you out to learn from them & get to enjoy the spring!
