The East End Arts Gallery, is debuting their new juried, all media art show, Art & Science. The gallery will kick off with a reception, which is a free event and open to the public on Friday, April 26, from 5 to 7 p.m. This show will feature artwork which depicts the connected, yet very different concepts of art and science. Artist and science teacher Kryn Olson serves as guest juror.
When describing her development and process as a scientist and artist, Olson said, “Raised in Michigan, surrounded by rolling farm fields and beautiful woods, I began exploring nature at a very early age. Learning to observe gave me the insight and knowledge of how things interact and work together.” She continued, “I still witness and observe life, internalizing it through all of my senses. I use my head and my gut, so that when I go to put an experience onto the canvas it is rearranged, recombined. I record moments, the beauty of a time witnessed. They are always as I experienced them-in color, filled with line and form.”
The East End Arts Gallery is located at 133 East Main Street in Riverhead. For more information visit:http://eastendarts.org or contact Gallery Director Jane Kirkwood at 631-727-0900 or [email protected]
