Gerald Peters Gallery and Peters Projects, in association with The New Mexico Spatiotemporal Modeling Center (STMC) and Los Alamos National Laboratories, is pleased to present Spectrum, a contemporary invitational art exhibition planned for March 18-19, 2016 at Peters Projects in Santa Fe, NM. The exhibition's focus is on works created by artists who are known for the integration of science in their art practice. Expanding on the annual STMC event, The Art of Systems Biology, the exhibition will again include lectures and workshops promoting the application of the physical sciences and mathematics to solve complex problems in human biology. The intent of this show is to broaden the discussion of the ever increasing intersection between art and science while providing a window into the advanced microscopy, nanoscale engineering and computer simulations used and applied at the STMC. Works of art by renowned regional and national artists, including Suzanne Anker, Todd Siler, Julia Buntaine and Brian Knep, will be exhibited alongside microscopy images from UNM and LANL scientists. More information and details can be found at STMC's website.
