Eclosion - the act of an adult insect emerging from its pupal case – symbolizes Art.Science.Gallery.’s transformation from a pop-up gallery to a brick-and-mortar venue. Artworks address the role of insects in the natural and changing world, including aesthetic, cultural, economic, educational and scientific aspects of entomology – the study of insects. Through this artwork, we hope to increase public understanding of insects, entomology, biodiversity and the importance of science and conservation.

Co-curators Barrett Klein (University of Wisconsin – La Crosse, www.pupating.org) and Hayley Gillespie (Art.Science.Gallery.) have assembled artworks that range from exquisite illustrations to human-insect collaborations. Steven Kutcher’s darkling beetles paint with colored feet while Jennifer Angus’ real and hybrid insects carry out human-like activities. Carel Brest van Kempen’s humans experience insect-like metamorphosis and Vincent Fink’s Lord Worm reigns in Atlas Metamorphosis.

The exhibition features 56 works by 43 artists, which were chosen by an esteemed jury of entomologist-artists Dr. Mark Moffett (National Geographic), Dr. Walter Tschinkel (University of Florida), Dr. David Maddison (Oregon State University) and Dr. Diane Ullman (University of California at Davis). ECLOSION aims to increase public appreciation of insects, entomology and biodiversity through the visual arts.
