The Harrington Gallery main exhibition spaces inside the City of Pleasanton's Firehouse Arts Center complex will host a major installation entitled "Convergences: Science, Technology, and Art," on view to the public from September 28 through October 26, 2019.
The exhibit opens with an Artists' Reception in the gallery on Saturday, September 28, from 1:00-3:00 p.m. The public is welcome to come explore the works, meet and chat with the artists, and enjoy light refreshments. A donation of $5.00 is suggested.
Gallery curator Alena Sauzade describes the theme: "Unique artistic visions of the planet, space, and human biology come together in Convergences; an innovative exhibit focused on artists who practice at the intersections of science, technology, and art." She notes that the works will range from abstracted graphite drawings of the earth from above, to sculpted biological macro structures, and that they all in some way examine fundamental questions about human life, the fragility of the earth, and the possibilities of life beyond our planet.
The artists: Utilizing a wide variety of media, including painting, multimedia, photography and drawing, the artists are Kimberely D'Adamo Green, Scott Kildall, Ray Koh, Christy Kovacs, Hannah Perrine Mode, Sarah Ratchye and Christine Weir.
YOUNG @ ART: "Art+Science!" is a special class connected to the exhibit for young people ages 5-11. Thursday, October 17, from 4:30-5:45 p.m. Participants will have a guided exploration of the exhibit, then learn to use art techniques to explore the natural world. Register at www.pleasantonfun.com, code 16078. The fees are $18 for Pleasanton residents, and $21 for non-residents.
