Maria Coryell-Martin: Inspiration from ice

From October 4 -18, painter Maria Coryell-Martin will join the Cary Institute's research community
as our fall artist-in-residence.

Hailing from Seattle, Coryell-Martin's work takes her to polar and glaciated regions. Her career path launched with participation in the Juneau Icefield Research Program, an interdisciplinary study of the fifth largest icefield in the Western Hemisphere. She received a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship for her project, Ties to the Land: Exploring Remote Regions through Art. In addition to her travels, Coryell-Martin leads workshops and has held over 20 exhibitions. Through watercolors, inks, and field drawings, she records species, terrain, and climate to promote environmental awareness.
