Groveland Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of From the Bog, an exhibit of new photographs by Meg Ojala. Ojala has lived in Minnesota most of her life and has taught photography at St. Olaf College for over 30 years. In 2017, she was awarded an Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board to research, explore, and photograph bogs. She intends for the resulting photographs to make the insights of natural science visible and to call attention to the ambiguous nature of these beguiling ecosystems.
The artist will be present at the opening reception Saturday, December 2nd from 2-5 pm. Prior to the opening at 12:30pm, there will be a panel discussion about bogs from four different perspectives. The panelists will include Scott King, dragon fly expert, printer, publisher, poet, writer from Northfield; John Latimer, phenologist and popular radio show host from Grand Rapids, Minnesota; Katrina Vandenberg, poet who publishes with Milkweed and teaches at Hamline University, and the artist, Meg Ojala.
