The ECSA is pleased to announce that we are soliciting applications for VISITOR funds for FY2018. ECSA members who would like to bring a visitor to NCAR for a collaborative visit may apply for these limited funds.

These visits have the goals of enhancing partnerships with other public and private institutions, and furthering the science done by early career scientists here at NCAR. These funds are available to all ECSA members. The length of the visit should be appropriate for the purpose, and awards will be limited to $5000. If funding is awarded, you will be required to write a 1-page summary about the visit and what was achieved as a result. Also, depending on the length/purpose of the visit, the ECSA may request your visitor give a seminar.

Please visit the ECSA visitor funds web page for more information, and a link to the online application. 

For questions, please contact Rachel McCrary, Chair of the ECSA Steering Committee:, x2482

Original Abstract Oil and Mixed Media Paintings by Kathy M. Friesz

A Colorado native, Kathy M. Friesz currently resides in Denver. Kathy’s formal education at The Colorado Institute of Art, where she studied graphic design and interior design, allowed her to pursue a career as the owner and primary designer of her own firm for over 20 years. Her professional interior design experience has significantly influenced her sensibilities in achieving strong paintings. 

Works of Mixed Media, Digital, Ink and Paint by Mark Ludy

Mark Ludy is inspired to tell stories through his art and illustrations, evoking thought, emotion and humor, lifting the chins and ultimately the hearts of his audience. Much thought is brought to bear upon each piece as well as sound effects. While he says his education is suspect, his drive and body of work are not. He has illustrated 12 picture books, written another six books and is always creating. He lives in Longmont, Colorado with his wife and children.

All artists work will be on display in the UCAR Community Art Galleries at the NCAR Mesa Lab.
