I am very proud not just to have been able to help put this show together but to have a piece of art accepted as well!

Humans have always imagined distant worlds. Come and see the fantastic visions of alien spacecraft, planetary discovery, and strange new moons in these astronomical paintings. Arizona is home to many talented astronomical artists, and Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium is proud to host this new exhibit “The Heritage of Astronomical Art in Arizona.” Organized by the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA) this collection of masterful paintings will spark your imagination and take you to galaxies far, far away.

The Tucson-Chapter of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA) in conjunction with University of Arizona Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium proudly present an exhibit of fine art, “The Heritage of Astronomical Art in Arizona.”

This curated collection of inspired space art from many recognized painters will be on display from 8 June through 30 August.
