BioArtography – Where Art Meets Science at Gallery 194 in Lapeer
Gallery 194 in downtown Lapeer brings together both sides of the brain with BioArtography: where art meets science running now through April. This unique exhibit features images provided by the University of Michigan’s Center for Organogenesis and is a product of their laboratory research.
University researchers united from a variety of disciplines at the center utilize cutting edge advances in microscopic imaging technology to analyze cellular activity by viewing transparent tissue samples stained to identify specific cellular components.
“I believe this is BioArtography’s first gallery exhibit and we are happy to host. We hope to make information about scientific advances accessible through these compelling abstract images here in Lapeer County by exposing the art behind science,” states Gallery 194 Director Carolyn Manley McCarter. “This artwork encourages interaction; it makes biological research inviting to those of us who might otherwise be intimidated by it.”
Gallery 194 is located at the corner of Court and West Nepessing Streets in downtown Lapeer next to the historic Pix Theater and is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 6pm. Admission is always free and open to the public. For more information log onto www.gallery194.com or call 810-667-1495.
