An upcoming show opening Tuesday, April 21st at the American Center for Physics (ACP) explores the interplay between science and art and their shared quest to illuminate the universe and our place in it. Sarah Tanguy is the Guest Curator for the show “FLOW” featuring “Catalepsie provoked by a bright light,” one of my paintings from the Augustine series. Also in the group show are photographs by J.W. Mahoney and sculptures by Washington Glass School artists Allegra Marquart, Syl Mathis, Debra Ruzinsky, Tim Tate, Erwin Timmers, and Audrey Wilson.
While scientists and engineers have long tackled the problem of turbulence and its impact on the flow physics of liquids and gases—the experience of flow pervades our everyday life from the passage of blood through our bodily vessels to that of water running out from a tap, the artists in FLOW are drawn to the marvels of certain materials as they transition from one state to another.
Opening Reception, April 21st, 5:30-7:30 pm
