The local Denver/Boulder American Meteorological Society chapter will be hosting a seminar with Matt Kelsch, who works as a meteorologist for the UCAR/UCP/COMET Program.

In this seminar, Matt will discuss the Boulder coop climate station that will reach its 30-year mark next Spring. It will be the first time in Boulder has had a consistent 30-year record, and he will go over the average temperatures and precipitation. He will also talk about the climatology and how it is sometimes problematic to compare it to older data that were taken before the current climate station. The challenges of inconsistent climate data exist in many locations, and Boulder offers a good example of that.

Photography by Mark Shegda – Gallery I

Mark Shegda’s photography is inspired by his love of the outdoors and outdoor sports. His interest in photography was first sparked by the stunning natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains after he moved from Pennsylvania to Colorado over 40 years ago. His photographic goal is to create visually stunning and spiritually moving imagery that inspires the viewer to appreciate the beauty of the natural world. He enjoys capturing scenic beauty whether it be in grand sweeping landscapes or in smaller more intimate natural scenes, and he especially enjoys printing and sharing his work on canvas.

Pastel Paintings by Teri Hoyer – Gallery II

Teri Hoyer’s pastel artwork strives to connect the viewer to the natural world as she experiences it – that connection for her is always soothing. She primarily paints landscapes of Colorado and the Southwest, work that has appeared in many juried art shows and won numerous awards.

Art Reception: Sunday September 15th from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the Mesa Lab cafe. Light refreshments will be served. Come meet the artists and be inspired by their beautiful artwork!

Preview all artists work on the NCAR Community Art Calendar http://scied.ucar.edu/exhibits/community-art-program
