This event has ended.

Watercolor amulet paintings by Carlyle Chaudruc Upson explore the myriad of colors and intricate patterns which appear on the bodies of scarab beetles. This rendition of them explores the beauty of humble desert dung beetles. Revered over millennia for the ability to thrive & reproduce in harsh conditions, the scarab beetle was depicted frequently in ancient Egyptian art. These sketches of abstracted beetles swam in vivid hues and become objects of admiration for the persistence of life when faced with adversity.
