Galleries across the world have temporarily closed due to the pandemic, but this has not stopped Allegheny Art Galleries curators Byron Rich and Paula Burleigh from continuing their work in presenting the virtual exhibition Bioscientific Imaginaries. Bioscientific Imaginaries features works by artists Kathy High, Marta De Menezes, and Jennifer Willet, bringing them together in an exhibition that challenges conventional assumptions surrounding science and its methods. Visit the gallery’s website to view the full digital exhibition and read love letters sent between the artists exploring their professional and personal relationships, and of course their art. The exhibition is available to view online from September 15th - November 2nd, 2020.
