Art.Science.Gallery. is proud to be hosting our 4th Annual Art-Science Trading Card Exhibition + Gallery Fundraiser, which benefits the gallery’s art-science programs. We just launched a Save Art.Science.Gallery. crowd-funding campaign to raise funds to stay open and sign another year lease at our brick-and-mortar location (see www.artsciencegallery.com/save for details). We need your support more than ever, and we look forward to a great fourth trading card show this year! The exhibit will feature hundreds of original, affordable, miniature works of science-inspired art! Send us a mini-work of science-inspired art for our fundraiser and it will live forever in our public online library of Art-Science Trading Cards (http://artscitradingcards.tumblr.com/) and it will be included in our exhibition.

Join us for a group exhibition about the amazing diversity of the order Coleoptera! Darwin had a particular fondness for them, and about 40% of all described insects are beetles (half a million species or more)! With new species being discovered all the time, this artwork by 15 artists from the USA, Spain and Italy explores beetle diversity, behaviors, habitats, agricultural significance, and natural history.
