About the event
Join Stroud Water Research Center and Trail Creek Outfitters for a special screening of the documentary film “Artifishal” (2019).
Produced by Patagonia Films, this feature-length documentary is a film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. It explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our continued loss of faith in nature.
Doors open at 5:45pm for refreshments and shopping with two local artists, Henisee Pottery and Atwater Designs.
After the screening, we are pleased to offer a Q&A with Stroud Center Executive Director, Dave Arscott, Ph.D., whose research focuses on aquatic primary production, distribution and diversity of aquatic macroinvertebrates, ecohydrology, and the ecology of rivers and floodplains.
About the Artists:
Henisee Pottery - Jacqueline Henisee began her college education studying social work with a minor in fine art. In 2003, she changed directions and transferred to Philly U to study Industrial Design. As a young product designer, she thrived creating aesthetic, functional and ergonomic objects. After graduating, she decided to take a course in ceramics at a local art studio and discovered the magic of clay. Twelve years later, her love for clay only continues to grow. Jackie creates out of her West Chester, PA home studio and local studio in Chester Springs, PA, where she wood-fires her work in a kiln built by her community of fellow ceramic artists.
Atwater Designs - Sarah has been a maker for as long as she can remember. She was always busy with paint and paper as a child. She loved to collect pens from various places around the house. Her Dad taught her everything she knows about plants and gardening which led to a deep appreciation for the natural world. Sarah loves the color blue and she doesn't care much for olives. When she is not in the studio she can be found at her day-job teaching photography full-time at an all-girls school, running, or drinking coffee in her backyard.
(Atwater was Sarah’s middle name before getting married. It was her mother’s maiden name and one that is deeply important to her, both because it represents her mother’s half and also because of the rich importance water has played in the life of her family.)
