"Science Inspires Art: OCEAN" organized by Art & Science Collaborations Inc. (ASCI) is the 19th international juried art show by this 30-year-old nonprofit. "With every grain of sand, sod, and soil spoken for on the shore, the artists in this exhibit are deeply connected to the mystery and great unmined truths of the last thing no one can claim: the sea," writes Diana Moore, co-juror of the exhibition.
"Sea of Vulnerability," an exhibition by international artist, biologist, and environmental education Brandon Ballengee, is now on view at Rowan University's Art Gallery in Glassboro, New Jersey. Ballengee is well-known as a science-art practitioner, merging his scientific and artistic work to better understand endangered and effected populations of amphibians, birds, fish , and insects.

Botany is having a moment; with the rise of the millennial-cultivated “jungalow” and a sustained appeal for urban agriculture projects, interest in plant life is thriving. Even Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year, a “zesty yellow-green shade” called “Greenery,” is aptly verdant.
"Plant Scenery of the World," an exhibition at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh’s Inverleith House, captures and contextualizes this moment through a combination of contemporary works alongside botanical illustrations and material from the institution’s vast archives.
"Beyond Memories" is an interactive exhibition exploring what it means to live with dementia. People living with dementia, their families and researchers have worked together with artists, Kim Leigh Pontin, Sophie Michael, Nicole Morris and Natasha Cossey to create a whole new collection of work based around the realities of living with the condition. The exhibition will showcase work made specially for the exhibition by Sophie Michael, made in collaboration with Ingelin Testad, a dementia researcher at Kings College London.
