The Art Exhibit

The etchings that illustrate Wicked Bugs were created by Briony Morrow-Cribbs.

A selection of these prints are the focus of an elegant, framed art installation. More than simple prints on a wall, the limited edition, hand-tinted prints are presented within sophisticated shadow box displays that also contain factual information and 3-D objects and specimens.

Tour Dates ongoing; next venue is the Natural History Museum, Halifax Nova Scotia Winter 2014 as a compliment to BUGS: Outside the Box exhibition.
