Elemental Matters

Opening this week is a unique exhibition intersecting the worlds of science and the arts. Elemental Matters: Artists Imagine Chemistry at Philadelphia's Chemical Heritage Foundation Museum features a collection of artwork presenting different ways to experience the elements and the periodic table. The Periodic Table Printmaking Project, a collection of small, hand-pulled prints, one for each element, will be included in the exhibition.

I made a pair of prints, Einsteinium and Indium, for this project back in 2007 and even helped out by designing the website. Apparently, 2011 is the International Year of Chemistry so the exhibit will be up for the entire year. If you are near Philadelphia it might be worth stopping and checking this show out.

If you are interested in collecting some of the periodic table prints, I have two Indium prints for sale. This was a second run from the original etching plate, but the litho plate was replaced with a blue-green silkscreen. That was followed by a bunch of hand drawn colored pencil elements. The last two print are available for only $40 each, postage paid.
