SfN is Looking for Brain-Inspired Artists

The Society for Neuroscience is seeking artists and craftsmen whose work is inspired by the brain and the nervous system to sell or just exhibit their paintings, sculpture, multimedia, or crafts at the annual meeting, to be held later this fall in San Diego.

As they describe it, “This is a chance to sell to a crowd of more than 30,000 researchers, doctors, technicians, writers, and professors from across the neuroscience world.”

This is the second year of the Art of Neuroscience exhibit, and last year, the exhibit included the gold leaf creations of Greg Dunn and jewelry by Kathleen Childress. Reports from conference organizers were that “all the artists were very well received and not only sold many pieces on-site, but took custom orders.”

SfN representatives advise that space is limited and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. The annual meeting is Nov. 9-13 at the San Diego Convention Center.

  • I will make every effort to be a part of what looks to be a wonderful opportunity, to connect with a wide, scientific oriented audience and those who will hopefully be with interest. The current and exponential portfolio I am working on, that spans several years, and the brand of digital art photography I create is experimental. The beach at Coney Island Portfolio is dedicated to Albert Einstein, and has an abstract relationship to Philip Glass’s electronic opera, “Einstein on the Beach” that influenced me so many years ago. I believe the SfN audiences will appreciate the special effects which require the viewer to consider what is near and far at the same time, obscuration at a distance (blur) and sharp, clarity of objects which are in the foreground, along with mysterious metallic elements as they enters into the picture which create a puzzlement at the psychological level. If my photography is accepted, I will write an essay to accompany any exhibition of my work at your upcoming event to shed further light on my influences and objectives as an experimental art photographer.
