Gallery Exhibition explores synergy between art and science
The Penn State Berks Freyberger Gallery will present Art and Science, an exhibition that explores the responses and reactions of artists, through their work, to the research and scholarly interests within the Penn State Berks science division from January 10-February 22, 2013, with an opening reception on Thursday, January 10, at 6 p.m. This event is free an open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.
In this exhibition, artists interpret scientific information aesthetically, using the scientific information as a point of departure for their creative endeavors. Viewers will observe art that illuminates, defines, and interprets the data and information gathered by the College’s science faculty members, making it more accessible for some and more intriguing for others. While the faculty’s research has provided important and useful information on such topics as mathematics, horticulture, biology, chemistry, and physics—just to name a few—the artists featured in this exhibition have used these discoveries to create other exciting new realities through their work.
The Freyberger Gallery is open Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. For more information, contact Marilyn Fox, Gallery Director, at 610-396-6140 or via e-mail at MJF14@psu.edu.
