TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Experience a New Art Exhibit “Sketches in Code” at Bankhead Theater Gallery

Feb 20, 2021
Science, math, computers and art meet nature in “Sketches in Code,” the latest art exhibit presented at Livermore’s Bankhead Theater Gallery (2400 First Street, Livermore, CA.), currently on display through May 2. With “Sketches in Code,” visitors can explore how the intersection of mathematics, science, art and computers can be used to visualize and create artistic pieces, which also describe and explain nature. As one tours this exhibit, its purpose is to show that while art has often been described as an opposing discipline to mathematics, science and computers, in many ways they are very similar. In the end, all are creative processes that involve a journey of discovery.

The natural world around us is complex, mysterious, orderly, chaotic, stark and often beautiful at the same time. For centuries, people have sought to understand and explain Nature through the study of science and creating tools such as mathematics and eventually computers to perform billions of calculations to describe natural phenomena and to understand the world around us.

At the same, artists and designers throughout the ages have used their tools to portray and construct the art and structures using their tools and media to make sketches, paintings, sculptures, and architecture, to create very realistic representations , as well as abstract and chaotic creations. Also, computers over the past several decades have also provided artists, engineers and architects with tools to help design buildings, as well as beautiful and stirring art.

Sometimes, the choices and different paths one takes may lead to something random or chaotic. Other times, the choices along the way lead to creations that are both striking and beautiful representations containing innumerable sequences and patterns. In all cases, however, the journey can be thrilling Putting art at the heart of a community enhances our lives and inspires us to think beyond the norm. Each artist expresses their feelings and creativity in unique ways. That is why it is so important to feature artists, their work and teachings at both the Bankhead Theater and the Bothwell Arts Center.

This exhibit describes how the intersection of mathematics, science, art and computers can be used to visualize and create artist pieces which also describe and explain nature. As you tour this exhibit, we hope you see that, where art has often been described as an opposing discipline to mathematics, science and computers, in many ways, however, they are very similar. In the end, all are creative processes that involve a journey of discovery.

and exciting on the way to creative discovery.

This exhibit, co-sponsored by Livermore Arts and Quest Science Center Bankhead Theater Gallery, is open Fridays 2-6pm; Sat and Sun 1-5pm. There is limited entry, and masks are required.
