Discover a Unique View Into Your Natural World
The Guild of Natural Science Illustrators (GNSI) Members Exhibit will be on display at the MSU School of Architecture’s Lower Gallery (located at Cheever Hall) July 16 through July 30, 2007. This exhibit showcases a collection of scientific and nature illustrations created by contemporary artists, who have visually interpreted natural science in its infinite complexity or expressed the essence of a scientific concept in a simplicity that can easily be understood by the public.
This collection of 42 color paintings, black and white drawings, and digital compositions are a visual representation or explanation achieved by the collaboration of scientist, naturalist and artist. Each is a product of each artist’s love of science, nature and art. The artwork is successful if those who view it gain insight into our world and inspiration from the images.
The Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, founded by Smithsonian Institution illustrators in 1969, promotes the depiction and communication of science and nature with accuracy and clarity, striving for beauty.
The GNSI exhibit is free and open to the public from 8am 5pm Monday through Friday, July 16-30, 2007 in the Lower Gallery at Cheever Hall, School of Arhitecture on the Montana State University-Bozeman campus.
