Art in Science
Gallery on the Plaza

Detail, accuracy, beauty – all describe the artwork of science illustrator Virge Kask. Her drawing skills were apparent at an early age. Later, she applied those skills to biology, expressing her love of nature through art.

This exhibit represents 30 years of freelance natural science illustration, including 15 spent at UConn as the campus scientific illustrator. Her artwork has been reproduced in scientific journals, children’s books, educational posters, museum exhibits and textbooks.

 

 

A public reception will take place on Thursday, September 10 from 4-6 p.m.

The exhibits run from June 29 through October 19 in Homer Babbidge Library.
