One Billionth of a Meter - Artistic Reflections on the World of Nanotechnology is currently on display in the Llewellyn Gallery through November 5th.
Artist Carol Flaitz was on hand for the opening reception and gave an artist talk in the gallery. Students, ASC faculty, staff, and community members gathered to hear Flaitz speak. Her talk, titled "Combining art and science; walking the tightrope," revealed the history of the seemingly disparate disciplines to a full gallery.
Flaitz's current work is a series of ceramic paintings based on images obtained through electron microscopy. This work is accompanied by work from a number of international artists whose work is part of the NanoArt21, competition. The mission of Nanoart21 is to raise the public awareness of nanotechnology and its impact.
During the reception, Digital Media and Animation students had the opportunity to meet Flaitz and speak to her about her work.
The Llewellyn Gallery is located in the Engineering Technologies Building, room 312, on the Alfred State College campus. Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.
