This exhibit is a visual journey presenting the microscopic world as an important dynamic of our estuary. It showcases Appleton’s discoveries expressed as microphotography, cut paper works, videos and digital assemblages. “Mysteriously beautiful, I have learned that diatoms are so much more; they are vital to our health, the waters surrounding us and the world beyond,” said Beth Appleton. “This exploration has led me to the creative bridge between art and science.”
