Fall Meeting, October 23rd, Academy of Sciences

The fall meeting of our chapter was held at the California Academy of Sciences on October 23rd in San Francisco. In addition to chapter business and discussion, we visited special collections and explored the beautiful new museum.

The agenda included a presentation on a web-based platform for digital exhibitions developed by chapter member Mia Jaeggli. We also had an informal group discussion where each of the attendees introduced themselves and described their current projects. The group was then treated to tours of the collections in the Naturalist Center and in the Research Collection by librarian Larry Currie and archivist Danielle Castronovo, as well as other gracious librarian hosts.

The full minutes of the meeting will be posted soon.

A small but enthusiastic group visited the Estuary Art Attack in Alameda, CA on August 14th. We enjoyed food and drink at the Speisekammer Beer Garden and visited several galleries, including Autobody Fine Art, Forrealism Studios, K Gallery @ Rhythmix. We found a lively and diverse art scene and artworks in many media.
