Artist Willa Downing’s mixed media artworks will be on display at the Reach from Feb. 5 to March 1.

In her Maps of Weather exhibition, artist Willa Downing shows a recent body of mixed media artworks that combine mapping, scientific phenomena and artistic imagination.

Rational, grid-like structures are contrasted with the much more organic shapes used to describe natural phenomena.

Downing, who has a PhD in biochemistry and a diploma in painting, combines her passion for both art and science in this exhibition, which runs from Feb. 5 to March 1 at The Reach.

There will be an opportunity to meet Downing in person on Feb. 17 at 10:30 a.m. in Abbotsford as part of The Reach’s Culture, Coffee and Cookies program.

Pre-register in person at The Reach, call 604-864-8087 or visit online at www.thereach.ca/events-programs.
