Creative Works from the Membership of the Texas Academy of Science
The art exhibit Art From The Republic of Science ran from February 28 - March 1, 2013 at Schreiner University, featuring 41 works of art from 12 members of the Academy. The exhibition was commissioned by TAS for the Academy's 116th Annual Meeting and was curated by ecologist and artist Dr. Hayley Gillespie of Art.Science.Gallery. - an art gallery and science communication space in Austin.
This exhibition featured science-related artworks in an effort to promote the use of the creative arts in science communication, increase artistic and scientific innovations via interdisciplinary collaborations and to support the creative endeavors of Texas scientists. The exhibit included a diverse range of creative works that combine art and the natural sciences through content, purpose, craft and materials including ceramics, photography, printmaking, textiles, folk art, drawing, painting and mixed media.
