A solo art exhibition of illustrations, fine art and photography by “OC” Carlisle, a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree candidate in scientific illustration in the Lamar Dodd School of Art, is on display in Candler Hall through May 11, 2015.
Carlisle researches and creates botanical, entomological and medical studies and renderings for a variety of assignments in her scientific illustration studies. Her illustration skills include graphite, carbon pencil and dust, colored pencil, watercolor, ink and scratchboard along with computer illustration and graphics techniques.
In addition to her current studies, Carlisle has shown her illustrations, fine art and photography in invitational, juried and solo exhibitions in the Washington, D.C., area, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Northeast Georgia.
She has won a number of awards for her works including the Joshua Laerme Award for Excellence in Scientific Illustration. That award was given to her by Gene Wright, a professor of art and chair of scientific illustration at UGA. The animal/botanical project was created in graphite, watercolor wash and colored pencil.
Carlisle’s recent juried exhibitions include the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators in 2010 and 2012; the Lamar Dodd School of Art Scientific Illustration from 2010 to 2014; and Georgia Regents University from 2010 to 2014.
