The Oban Times - - Districts -

MAL­LAIG artist Jane Rush­ton has been in­vited to ex­hibit her work at the Joint Re­search Cen­tre (JRC) in Ispra, Italy, at the end of March.

Ms Rush­ton’s work has a strong Arc­tic in­flu­ence and she has made many trips to Green­land and Sval­bard to work with sci­en­tists. She said: ‘I have been keen to work with sci­en­tists and to ‘bor­row’ from their meth­ods in mak­ing my work in the be­lief art and science can work to­gether to en­gage au­di­ences in is­sues around cli­mate change and vul­ner­a­ble, frag­ile en­vi­ron­ments.’

JRC is the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion’s science and knowl­edge ser­vice where re­search is car­ried out to pro­vide sci­en­tific ad­vice and sup­port EU pol­icy. Ms Rush­ton said: ‘I will spend a week at JRC, dur­ing which I will give a lec­ture about my work and its links to science and sci­en­tific meth­ods, open the ex­hi­bi­tion and talk to cli­mate sci­en­tists and oth­ers.’
