Hayley Gillespie is the founder and curator of this excellent venue that is the first in the nation to focus exclusively on original works of science-related art. Painters, sculptors, printers, scientists, and others from the local community, across the country, and beyond contribute to the changing array of themed exhibitions (Insects! Evolution! Dinosaurs! Lasers! Tesla!). The space is part of the buzzing Canopy studio/gallery complex on Springdale, where it also offers science-oriented movie screenings and a variety of all-ages classes.
This exhibition features new work in multiple media, work that explores topics of bird migration, communication, taxonomy, feeding behavior, natural history, flight behavior, bird diversity, and conservation. Artists Carol Cunningham, Carrie Carlson, Emily Coleman, Kim Heise, Lauren Rochell, Lisa Rawlinson, Pat Falconer, Zoë Trautz, Rachel Ramirez, and Sarah St. Laurent bring the ornithological wonders. Through Oct. 1.
