In celebration of our evolution to a permanent gallery space, we hosted a group exhibition of science-art for the 2013 WEST Austin Studio Tour (April 27-May 5, map #178)!
The 27 artists featured in this exhibition represent a broad continuum of contemporary artists and scientists who are exploring science and nature through a diversity of artistic media. Physicists, ecologists, entomologists, ichthyologists, geologists, medical and scientific illustrators, philosophers, artists, naturalists and evolutionary biologists explore science in this exhibition through sculpture, photography, ceramics, communication design, drawing, collage, mixed media, fibers, printmaking, metalsmithing and painting.
This exhibition marks a significant point in our gallery’s evolution from a pop-up space to a brick-and-mortar gallery. Our goal is to cultivate a community space where anyone can rediscover science and art through new lenses. A space where artists and scientists can forge new and collaborative relationships. A place for people to see science and art as continually interacting subjects. If you would like to see Art.Science.Gallery. become a permanent establishment in Austin, we invite you to Join Our Evolution by contributing to our crowd-funding project at www.artsciencegallery.com/evolve by May 9, 2013. All proceeds from this exhibition will benefit our crowd-funding project for our own gallery space.
