Celebrating Katie Sokolowski’s art show, Animalia!

Animalia celebrates the biodiversity of the animal kingdom in a series of paintings using a brilliant color palette of inks and watercolors.  Seven main pieces depict parades of forty charismatic species from the seven continents.  Overflowing the seven main pieces are smaller paintings intended to hold a magnifying glass up to the animals that were too small in size, too big in personality, or too many in number to be included in the main paintings. Intentionally devoid of a background and even shadows, these pieces raise awareness of what can be lost as a consequence to environmental destruction and habitat loss.  Many of these species are fighting for survival similar to the kids coming through Children’s National.  Like these animals, every child has a distinct personality that shines despite difficult trials – each child, a jewel worth treasuring.”

Neuron Volume 86, Issue 2 cover art


On the cover: This piece, created by Katie Sokolowski, playfully references “gene patterning” by alluding to the beautiful patchwork of intricate quilts. Icons of related behaviors, such as predator avoidance, stress, and feeding, juxtapose one another diagonally and are stitched together by a double helix that links an embryo to neuronal circuitry. Together, this illustrates the finding that the embryonic patterning gene, Dbx1, is required for the formation of select neural circuits and innate stress behaviors. In contrast, icons of other innate behaviors such as mating, aggression, and maternal care, which were also investigated in the paper by Sokolowski et al. (pages 403–416), are stitched by separate double helixes. This illustrates that development of circuits that regulate these behaviors are controlled by other gene(s).
