Gallery Talk with Emily Roush ’21 and Shannon Zeltmann ’21

Artful Nature and the Legacy of Maria Sibylla Merian
Curated by Emily Roush ’21 and Shannon Zeltmann ’21 under the direction of Prof. Felicia Else and Prof. Kay Etheridge

Original eighteenth-century prints by German naturalist and artist Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) as well as those by her followers—including Carolus Linnaeus, Christiaan Sepp, and
others—are featured in this exhibition curated by Gettysburg College students Emily Roush ’21 and Shannon Zeltmann ’21 under the direction of Prof. Felicia Else and Prof. Kay Etheridge. These intricate, accurate, and compellingly beautiful compositions reflect the artists’ and scientists’ extensive travels, dedication to scientific inquiry, and a thorough, innovative understanding of ecological frameworks. This exhibition is made possible by a generous gift by Bruce and Betsy Stefany and loans from Professor Kay Etheridge.
