As a 2015 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, Emily Gray Koehler chose to use this opportunity to explore her love of the environment and conservation in conjunction with her passion for the media of printmaking. In her ensuing series of prints entitled The Trespasser's Garden, Koehler investigated the ecology of invasive plants in Minnesota along with humanity's culpability in their introduction. In September, she will present a narrative tour of the works and share insights into her artistic process and investigative research.
