Art.Science.Gallery. announces the opening of Far Out, the gallery's newest art exhibition in partnership with the American Astronomical Society and Women in Astronomy during their annual meetings in Austin, Texas. A mini, traveling version of the Art & Science 2017: James Webb Space Telescope exhibit currently on display at the Visitors Center at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, artwork in the Far Out exhibit was inspired by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope.

In November 2016, twenty-two artists were selected nationwide to attend the James Webb Space Telescope Artist Event at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. They sat directly in front of the Webb telescope and were briefed on the mission by scientists, engineers and other project personnel while they worked. Art.Science.Gallery.’s Far Out exhibit showcases the impressions of eight of these artists.

The James Webb Space Telescope is the world’s most advanced space observatory. This engineering marvel is designed to unravel some of the greatest mysteries of the universe, from discovering the first stars and galaxies that formed after the big bang to studying the atmospheres of planets around other stars. It is a joint project of NASA, ESA (the European Space Agency) and the Canadian Space Agency.


The opening reception will be held on Saturday June 3, 2017 7-10pm at the gallery’s main location in the Canopy fine arts complex at 916 Springdale Road, Austin, TX 78702. The exhibit runs June 3 – July 29, 2017.
