“Geosciences + Art”, free lecture by Dr. Kathy Ellins, Institute for Geophysics at the University of Texas at Austin

How does geoscience use art? Ellins says that geoscientists routinely embrace visual representation to convey information that cannot be appreciated by language or symbols alone. Art can enlighten the implications of research results, and place science in a broader context – opening up science’s significance to not only professional audiences, but also students, and the general public.

Kathy Ellins is a program manager at UTIG where she specializes in Geoscience Education. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Geology from Skidmore College, a Masters in Science Education from New York University and a Ph.D. from Columbia University (LDEO).

hayleyandjaneIn a recent article on Scientific American’s website, editor and author Maia Weinstock featured 15 works of art depicting women in science. including a portrait of Jane Goodall by Art.Science.Gallery. founder Hayley Gillespie.

Weinstock described the need for a reimagining of the STEM acronym and the need for such imagery.

…there’s another sea change taking place right now, and that is the morphing of STEM into STEAM, an acronym acknowledging that art and design have always been integral to the fields of science and technology.

Scientific and mathematical crafts have become easier to find and purchase in recent years, thanks to the growth of online artist communities and marketplaces. And although depictions of scientists remain overwhelmingly male, an increasing number of artworks are beginning to highlight women as thinkers and creators. The artists in the following collection of works featuring women in science have contributed boldly to the dual goals of celebrating women in the STEM fields and portraying them positively through the lens of visual media.

Weinstock will co-curate a women-in-STEM art exhibit here at Art.Science.Gallery. that will run from September 13 to October 15, 2014.
