Dr. Regina Valluzzi: Science- Inspired Art Opening
Presented by Athan's European Bakery & Cafe'
April 29, 2012
Enjoy a bright idea in Brighton this Spring. The Athan's Cafe and Bakery is hosting an exhibition of Science inspired art from April 12 through June 3. The exhibit features colorful and organic paintings by Dr. Regina Valluzzi, an artist from Arlington with decades of research experience in the Physical and Biomedical Sciences. Independent curator John Quatrale has selected a group of engaging and intriguing original artworks for the exhibit.
Art can make Science more approachable. A painting can capture a technical concept, and make it both insightful and allusive. For the past three years, Valluzzi has increasingly explored art as a way to communicate scientific ideas. Many of the concepts encountered in the sciences are inherently abstract, and a creative painting captures and communicates different dimensions of these concepts. Valluzzi's abstracted paintings are vibrantly colorful. Her use of geometry, color, and pattern dances across the canvas. Many of the abstracted forms explore themes and ideas drawn from her experiences as a research scientist and science educator.
