Art meets science in this exhibition of photographs and artifacts from the field of paleontology. Co-curated with Mateusz Wosik, Ph.D., assistant professor of biology at Misericordia University, this selection of photographs by researchers from all over the world highlights the natural beauty of cellular structures that compose some of the most fascinating creatures to have walked the earth. Presented as works of art, these photomicrographs are used for paleohistology. That is, these are photoprints of what a scientist would see under a microscope as they examine bones of extinct organisms.

Associated American Artists Prints from the Springfield Museum of Art Collection
October 10, 2021 – January 9, 2022
In 1934, New York art dealer and publicist, Reeves Lewenthal, hatched a plan to form the Associated American Artists (AAA). The mission of the enterprise was to make art accessible, affordable and attractive to Americans. Lewenthal met with several American artists in Thomas Hart Benton’s New York studio. This group of talented, well-known artists were offered a flat artist fee of $200 to create original print stones and plates. From these the company produced limited edition etchings and lithographic prints. At the onset of AAA, these original impressions were available for five dollars each, and they were initially sold in department stores and later through mail order.
On Saturday, Nov. 6 at 5:30pm there will be a public reception and live music in the galleries. Music will be performed by Wendy Hinton and Misericordia Fine Arts Dept. Faculty guitar instructor, Patrick Temple.
