Wendy participated as an artist- and scientist-in-residence at the Wade in the Water residency program held by the Colorado Art Ranch in Salida, CO during the month of May 2010. There she joined six professional artists to explore issues related to water, land use, and the intersection between art and science. As the token scientist, Wendy spent almost as much time doing science as making art. She spoke to the Chaffee Citizens for Sustainability about Patagonia: Ice to Ocean and at a Central Colorado Humanists’ Sunday Science event about Water Futures. Time spent on art was devoted to experimenting with mixed media, including using clay on masonite as a substrate for oil pastel, watercolors and pastels, etching into these panels to provide texture, and weaving messages about science into her nature-inspired paintings (www.wendypabich.com). The month culminated in a three-day Artposium, Wade in the Water, in which artists, writers, scientists, lawyers and others gathered to celebrate the mysteries of water through music, dance, art-making and writing. The event featured presentations by celebrated water activist and eco-artist Basia Irland, author and adventurer, Craig Childs, and Colorado Supreme Court Justice, Greg Hobbs.
