A ceramic vase featuring dozens of insects wowed attendees and earned the top honors at the juried art show at the 2022 Joint Annual Meeting of the Entomological Societies of America, Canada, and British Columbia in November. Sarah Ritchie, an independent artist based in Alberta, Canada, says the 2-foot-tall vase features nearly 40 insect “specimens,” an homage to natural history collections and their power to enhance our understanding of biological diversity and taxonomy.
