Art and ecology merge in undergraduate-organized exhibition

Martha Odum carried a sketch pad, a box of watercolors and a vial of water everywhere she traveled with her husband, Eugene P. Odum, for whom the University of Georgia's School of Ecology is named. Eugene Odum is often called the father of modern ecology, but it's possible Martha was its mother, dotingly painting gorgeous portraits of her child. The Georgia Museum of Art at UGA will show some of those landscape paintings in the exhibition "Martha Odum: Art Intersects Ecology," on view Oct. 7 to Dec. 31.
