Artists and scientists come together to explore the theme of habitats in an exhibition in the Lancaster Environment Centre.

The Art and Science of Terrestrial and Aquatic Habitats will be held March 21st – April 30th 2005

The aims of the project are to bring artists and scientists together to explore the theme of habitats and to demonstrate the varied ways that scientists and artists visualise habitats at different scales and using different methods and media contributions from artists and scientists include art from Jane Rushton, Lynda Gray, Kate Eggleston-Wirtz, Andy Goldsworthy, Paul Kenny, Alan Stones, Keith Beven, Richard Bardgett, Jackie Parry, Trevor Piearce, Jim Freer, John Quinton, Helaina Black, Bill Davison, and Andy Binley.
