The Science & Art Cabaret is an ongoing mash-up of creative and scientific tangents and ideas, intended to entertain and illuminate.

This month's theme addresses the earthly and cosmic question of our specialness—are we unique in the vastness of the cosmos or are we banal? Are we special amid the stars or only amongst ourselves?

Sarah Sutton
Knots and Pulses


This exhibition by Ithaca-area artist Sarah Sutton will feature a series of monochromatic oil paintings that combine representational imagery with distortions and abstractions that create scenarios in flux. They are essentially landscape paintings, but Sutton's treatment of the landscape toys with its sense of space and the notion of the built vs. the natural environment.
 

Katie Bell
Abstract Cabinet


Katie Bell’s exhibition is a site-specific installation conceived of as a one-act drama starring anonymous artifacts. Functioning like a theatrical set, the gallery holds static characters that reference the interior architecture of corporate and commercial spaces. Sculptural objects are often fractured or untethered to a contextual structure. Functioning as a whole, the individual artefacts are a nod to players on a stage, held captive in space and time.
