January Art Wall: Jessie KB’s Science through Art


The Opening Reception for Jessica Kendall-Bar’s exhibit, Science through Art, will be held on Sunday, January 5, 2020 from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm. Come chat with the artist; she is a PhD candidate in Marine Biology who believes that scientific progress is futile unless communicated successfully. During the reception, marine mammal themed pillows, phone cases, bags, t-shirts and other goodies will be available for your consideration. Light snacks will be provided. The exhibit will be open every Sunday from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon and on weekdays by appointment through January 26th. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

Jessica’s illustrations, photography, and cinematography aim to accurately portray science and its role in preserving the underwater ecosystem. She has illustrated two children’s books. The Castor Oil Rig Tales, published by AzBukiVeri Press, depicts the conservation success story of a community of marine organisms, which colonizes an abandoned oil rig. Her illustrations for a second children’s book, Looking for Marla, tells the story of a clownfish which changes sex from male to female (which is what male clownfish normally do when the mother disappears).

At the interface of science and art, Jessica endeavors to make meaningful discoveries and to convey those results broadly and creatively to impact diverse populations. To reach her audiences she uses photography, animation, illustration, cinematography, science comics, wood burning, alcohol markers, water colors, acrylics and more.
