 GENESIS OF THE “ART IN SPACE” TRAVELING EXHIBITION: Through September 2014

 “Art in Space” is a two-person exhibition, featuring the spectacular, dreamlike canvases of acclaimed Pennsylvania artist Jane Runyeon’s “Galactic” series, along with world-renowned Massachusetts glass artist Josh Simpson’s amazing “MegaPlanets” that debuted in Acadia National Park, Maine during last summer’s annual “Night Sky Festival.” The program was augmented by the participation of Simpson’s NASA/Space Shuttle astronaut wife, Cady Coleman, who joined the two artists via Skype from Mission Control in Houston, for a series of provocative lectures on the topic of the “Marriage of Art and Science.”

 JANE RUNYEON — ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

“Astronomy, the night sky, the beauty of Galileo’s notebooks, and images from NASA have all sparked my imagination. The Galactic Paintings explore the abstract edge where art and science meet. The series began over 20 years ago and continues to this day.”
