Consilience of Art & Science Exhibition / by Kate Farrall

Good news! I have a bioluminescent, unique, chromogenic print in the Consilience of Art & Science Exhibition at The Pence Gallery! This Art/Science fusion exhibition aims to show creative work that explores the intersection between art and science; to foster communication between the arts and sciences; and to spark new ways of viewing the world and ourselves.

The opening reception is Friday, Feb. 12 from 6-9 PM and I hope you'll join me there. The dates of the exhibit are Jan. 19-Feb. 28, 2016.

Location: The Pence Gallery, 212 D Street, Davis, CA 95616

Gallery Hours: Tue-Sun 11:30 AM - 5 PM

I'm especially honored to have been chosen for inclusion by Shih-Wen Young and Sharon Bladholm who both have a deep and impressive background with science-infused work. Here's a little more about them...

Shih-Wen Young received his Ph.D. in Physics from Kansas State University and is currently a professor in Astronomy/Physics at American River College, California. He has been awarded several art and technology grants, including one from Foundation Tenot, France. Shih-Wen has collaborated with artists, musicians, dancers, and scientists on numerous projects. His work has been shown and published in various exhibitions, conferences and journals, including the Chinese Biennial 2008, The State Hermitage Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Kiev, Hall of Science, NYC, and the Leonardo Electronic Almanac. Shih-Wen recently finished his “Message in the Sky” project in Dubai, and Joshua Tree, which integrates art and astronomy as a public participatory project. The project will be displayed in Taiwan in 2016, and at the Honolulu Biennial in 2017.

Sharon Bladholm has coordinated the Opal Glass Studios in Chicago since 1983, creating complex work investigating the intersections of art, science, and nature, in glass, bronze, and ceramics. In addition to her large-scale installations of public art at the Chicago Botanical Garden, Shedd Aquarium, and several city parks, she creates ceramic sculptures and works on paper. Her current series, ORGAN-ic Inflorescence, is related to her interest in internal organs interfacing with botanicals. Her work has been impacted greatly by participating on science expeditions to study biologically diverse ecosystems of the Amazon.
