Virtual Galleries - The Art Center Highland Park




The Art of Ellen Sandor and (art)n
“Art Saves. Tough Art and Science Really SAVES.”

Ellen Sandor and her team at (art)n, Azi (Azadeh) Gholizadeh and Diana Torres, completely redesigned their work to accommodate an online virtual experience.

Viewed through the lens of today’s crisis, (art)n and Ellen Sandor’s work becomes more inspiring and relevant. Throughout her career, Ellen has worked with incredible groups of gifted artists, scientists, technologists and thinkers, resulting in intense collaborations, integrating other artforms, computer graphics, medicine and science. The intense content merged into totally new mediums, PHSColograms, which deal with topics from AIDS and Papilloma viruses, to breast cancer and autis

Ellen’s work is groundbreaking, and once again they have exceeded expectations, expanding their selected images to transcend the virtual and literal, the screen and brain, the image and observer. What she and her team share with us in this exhibit is the fulfillment of the possibility that the arts have to inform and influence other areas, science, medicine, with the courage to come at issues from an entirely new direction. They take us back into the gallery, perhaps not physically, but have managed to recreate the space for all of us to enter. Like a traditional exhibition, their incredible work informs, educates and especially entertains. By merging virtual art into a true experience, they also challenge and inspire us to all “Visualize in a New Light.”

In spite of the current situation, TACHP continues to connect through art by presenting virtual exhibitions. The Art & Science theme has never seemed more relevant in the situation we now face. Despite the shutdown of our physical gallery space, we support artists by continuing to share their great work virtually.

Art & Science have always been interdependent, from the chemistry of paint, the theory of color, to the visualization, illustration, and imaging within the field of science and research. TACHP sought work that addresses how art and science intersect and the ways we can interpret and manifest this intersection using the many mediums available to artists. 

Thank you to Olea Nova and Rajee Aryal (images above) for their expertise in jurying the submitted work and sharing their extraordinary art that bridges art and science.
