The Science Of It
Exhibition Dates: June 8 - July 12, 2018


A juried exhibit of work exploring science and its influences in our world. Through science we study bacteria, biology, evolution, the stars and everything in between. We examine and hypothesize and relate. Here we asked artists to use their knowledge and interest in the many facets of science to inspire their work.

“To develop a complete mind: Study the science of art; Study the art of science. Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

Brigham Dimick


Juror  Brigham Dimick was born in Oak Park, Illinois in 1962 and grew up in Allentown, Pennsylvania. He is currently a professor at SIUE. As a teenager, Brigham studied at the Barnstone Studios, a privately run atelier, where he developed a portfolio that enabled him to win of a four-year scholarship to Tyler School of Art, where he received a BFA in painting. The diversity of those two educational experiences could not be more different. The opposing philosophies of time-honored development of drawing techniques within the atelier - compared to a strong emphasis on experimentation and self-invention at Tyler - has served as a catalyst for a life-long commitment to synthesize inherited traditions and new methodologies.

Before going to Indiana University for an MFA in painting, Brigham spent four years hitchhiking across the country, living in northern California, traveling in Mexico, painting houses, and drawing. He has received Individual Artist Fellowships from the states of Georgia and Pennsylvania and a professional development grant from Illinois, and also many generous grants through the Graduate School of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Some of his drawings are in the corporate collections of Morgan Stanley and Fische & Richardson, in the Dishman Art Museum, and in the university collections of Emporia State, and St. Ambrose University. He resides in Edwardsville, Illinois with his wife and two daughters. View the artist's website.
