WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT ART.SCIENCE.GALLERY.

Maia Weinstock with her Women of NASA Lego Idea.

“Congratulations to Art.Science.Gallery for five wonderful years! At a time when arts budgets are being slashed, A.S.G. is needed more than ever to help convey the beauty and wonder of science in a way that takes visitors out of their usual thinking caps and places them into the nanoworld, or ferrys them to the depths of outer space. When I curated “Go Ahead and Do It,” featuring portraits of women in the sciences, in 2014, it was incredibly powerful to see young women and men being moved by the stories of the unsung pioneers represented on the gallery walls.

This is the power of art, and another reason why I’m looking forward to the next five years at A.S.G.” – Maia Weinstock (@20tauri), science communicator at MIT, creator of women-in-STEM minifigs, and guest curator of our 2014 Go Ahead & Do It: Portraits of Women in STEM exhibition at Art.Science.Gallery..

The Art.Science.Gallery has been a big part of my journey as a creative scientist and I’m honoured to have my work represented at the Gallery Gift Shop. High Five for a fantastic five years and looking forward to sharing the next five with you!” –Rovena Tey (@thechemisttree), creator of The Chemist Tree greeting card company and represented in the gallery’s gift shop since 2013
