|SRJC to showcase artists’ work based on scientific inquiry
Santa Rosa Junior College’s (SRJC) Robert F. Agrella Art Gallery will present Sym.bi.osis: Art and Science Intersect, featuring the work of seven artists whose work is based on scientific inquiry.
The exhibition will be open for viewings from Sept. 15-Oct. 16. The opening reception will take place on Thursday, Sept. 18, from 4-6 p.m. in the Robert F. Agrella Art Gallery on SRJC’s Santa Rosa campus, located at 1501 Mendocino Ave. Daily parking permits for $4 are available in campus lots.
Featured artists include Gail Wight, Adrien Segal, Ken Goldberg, Chris Taggart, Adam Chapman, Emilie Clark, and John Roloff. The exhibition, curated by Debra Lehane and Satri Pencak, draws together works by artists who investigate and interpret the natural world through their art. By using a selection of natural sciences (such as biology, anatomy, geology, chemistry, and physics) as points of departure, viewers are given the opportunity to see how art and science can intersect and enlighten each other.
The Robert F. Agrella Art Gallery is open Monday and Wednesdays, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays, from noon-4 p.m.; and Saturdays, from 1-4 p.m. The gallery is closed for the summer, as well as on Fridays and Sundays. For more information go to www.santarosa.edu/art-gallery.
