The Museum of Arts and Sciences is pleased to present The Weather is Turning Weird: Data Visualizations by Nathalie Miebach.

This exhibition is on display now through January 4, 2015 and features the work of nationally recognized artist Nathalie Miebach. Miebach focuses on the intersection of art and science and the visual articulation of scientific observations. Ten of her woven sculptures, made of colorful reeds, rope, wood, and beads currently on display at the Museum of Arts and Sciences represent mammoth storms. Using the methodologies of both disciplines, she translates scientific data related to astronomy, ecology, and meteorology into colorful, intricate, tactile woven sculptures. Because weaving provides an effective grid through which she interprets data in three-dimensional space, her work lets us consider data from new perspectives.

Abrasion Holography by James Minden The Museum of Arts and Sciences is pleased to present Black & Light, an exhibition that gives each viewer a unique experience because no two people see the same thing at the same time.

Black & Light, on display now through November 2, 2014, features groundbreaking abrasion holograms—by artist James Minden—that appear to be three-dimensional. As a viewer moves around each piece of art, the item changes its appearance.

Not only is the viewer’s experience unique, the painter and printmaker admits that he hasn’t found many other artists experimenting with this new art medium.

Because of the interactive nature of Black & Light, there is no doubt that this exhibition must be seen in person to be believed.

Talented young artists from all around Georgia were featured in this traveling exhibition of winning entries in a competition associated with the Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program, sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Green-Winged Teal - Bethany PanhorstThe “Georgia Best of Show” piece by Bethany Panhorst  was joined by Georgia award winners at each grade level.

The program serves as a barometer of a student’s grasp of the fundamental principles of anatomy and environmental science, and also provides an opportunity for the student to express artistically their knowledge of the beauty and diversity of wildlife.

Artwork by the 2014 Junior Duck Stamp Competition winners is on display in the Elam Alexander Children’s Gallery through August 31, 2014.

Beverly Buchanan, an African American artist who explores Southern vernacular architecture in her art, lived in Macon from 1977 to 1985. During that time, many local art patrons connected with the powerful visual narratives captured in her drawings and sculptures. From flowers and seagrass to shacks and ruins, the works included in this exhibition represent Buchanan’s response to her Southern groundings and her desire to celebrate the essence of memory versus reality. On display are one and two-dimensional works from the collections of the Museum of Arts and Sciences, Tubman African American Museum, and fifteen regional art patrons.

By depicting vernacular architecture and its environment, Buchanan, who lived and worked in Georgia for much of her adult life, constructs a narrative that serves as a metaphor for the triumph of the human spirit over poverty and adversity. Although academically trained, Buchanan uses the tools often associated with the self-taught artist, such as inserted text, found objects, and loosely applied vibrant color, to create visually the rich textures of the humble, yet complex, structures of her drawings, sculptures, prints, and photographs.
