The Lankenau Institute for Medical Research (LIMR) 2013 Spring Exhibition, “Art Meets Science: Abstraction and Microscopy,” opens Tuesday, April 2, with an evening reception from 5-7:30 pm. The exhibit, located on LIMR’s lower level, 100 E. Lancaster Avenue, Wynnewood, will be open Monday through Friday through June 7 from 10am-2pm, or by appointment by calling 484.476.8400.
The abstract art, created by local artists Deborah Leavy, Deann Mills and Christine Stoughton, was juried by the LIMR Art Committee and members of the Lankenau Women’s Board. The selected show pieces are available for purchase, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit research at LIMR.
Also on display are microscopy images from LIMR, which can be considered abstract art as well. Visitors can compare and contrast the different types of artwork, appreciating the relationships between science and art. The mission of the LIMR Art Gallery is to recognize that scientists and artists explore similar, fundamental questions with respect to what people see and understand about living forms.
