Shale Play: Poems and Photographs from the Fracking Fields


Penn State faculty members Julia Spicher Kasdorf and Steven Rubin will share their stories and images about everyday life from Appalachian Pennsylvania and the Marcellus Shale region in an exhibition of works from their book Shale Play. Kasdorf and Rubin joined forces and art forms to better tell the stories of the fracking fields. Shale Play is an exhibition of documentary poems and color photographs created between 2012 and 2017 in response to the rush to mine the Marcellus Shale natural gas formation in Pennsylvania. The words and images amplify many voices and points of view to establish the complexity of the issues.

Christine Staver in the Community Gallery


Artist Statement: For the last 35 years, quilting has become my obsession. The inspiration for my quilts comes from nature, my love and fascination with old buildings as well as my attraction to things like cement works, oil rigs, and energy sources. My career spent teaching physics, astronomy, and meteorology has had a strong influence on my art. This can be seen particularly in my energy/environmental series.
