Nature Re-Visioned: Finding Meaning at the Intersection of Art and Science

See all news

AVA Gallery and Art Center, recipient of a New Hampshire Humanities grant, will host a gallery talk in conjunction with a current exhibit by photographer Rob Kesseler, who is visiting Dartmouth as part of an Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship, and sculptor Gar Waterman. On October 6 at 6:00 pm, the two will engage visitors in a discussion inspired by their work about the connections between art and science, how the disciplines inform one another, and the implications for humanity and nature. The exhibit is open through October 12.


Kesseler is Chair of Arts, Design & Science at University of the Arts, London. Following the publication of a collection of award-winning books on pollen, seeds, and fruit, his work reached a global audience eager to discover more about the exciting world previously hidden to all but the science community. 


Waterman earned a BA in French from Dartmouth College, but his interests led him to a career in sculpture. His work focuses on natural forms that explore the organic and inorganic architecture of our surroundings, and has been exhibited in solo and group exhibits including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. 


The exhibition and gallery talk are free and open to the public. For more information, visit
