In a new series of exhibits in the Fermilab Art Gallery, the Fermilab Archives will feature influential works loaned by the private collection of a Fermilab scientist. It kicks off with the current exhibit, which features works from the 17th and 18th centuries. Each display, which will rotate approximately once a month, will consist of several volumes illustrating a common theme in the evolution of physics.

From Voyage Chicago, Dec. 6, 2018: Georgia Schwender, Fermilab Art Gallery curator, talks about creating art, curating a gallery, and founding the lab’s artist-in-residence program.

The Employee Art Show will be on display October 4 through November 29, the reception is on October 10th from 5-7pm. All are welcomed. If you would like to participate fill out this form by September 14 and mail to georgia@fnal.gov or MS 232. Then bring your artwork to the Art Gallery on October 1st 8am-11am.

On Monday, Feb. 26, at noon in the Fermilab Art Gallery, Fermilab artist-in-residence Jim Jenkins will give an informal gallery talk. The exhibit is on display until March 6. This is a wonderful opportunity to interact with our latest artist-in-residence and to get a sense of how he understands science at Fermilab. With only a few weeks left before Jenkins’s exhibit concludes, it’s good to take advantage of his final talk: Learn how Fermilab science looks through an artist’s eyes.

From WDCB’s First Light, Jan. 21, 2018: Fermilab’s 2017 artist-in-residence Jim Jenkins discusses a number of his pieces, now on display in the Fermilab Art Gallery, including his snowflake detector. Director Nigel Lockyer and Curator Georgia Schwender talk about the importance of art to understanding science.

In the Art Gallery on Friday October 20 from 5-8pm meet the artists Candace Wark and Shirley Nannini. In addition see the demonstration of the Wind Tunnel. All are welcome.

Art gallery tour

Join us on Saturday, Aug. 26, at 10 a.m. in the Fermilab Art Gallery to learn more about Angela Gonzales and her artistic career at Fermilab. To sign up for tour and more information, visit http://eddata.fnal.gov/lasso/program_search/gonzales-tours.lasso

Have you been to see the Angela Gonzales exhibit at the Fermilab Art Gallery yet? If not, be sure to check it out. Fermilab’s first artist made a lasting mark on the laboratory — in drawings, on buildings, even by designing the Fermilab logo.
