The current exhibition at both the Goodstein Visual Arts and Mildred Zahradnicek galleries, “Spooky Action at a Distance” will close on Friday, Feb. 23 with a lecture and reception.

The lecture and reception are part of the 33rd Annual Humanities Festival, which will focus this year on “Fables, Folklore, and Fantasy” at Casper College. The exhibition combines the works of two artists, Maria Rose Wimmer and Meghan Rowswell. The two explore the topic of quantum entanglement, which was first described by Albert Einstein as “Spooky Action Theory.”

“Maria Rose Wimmer focuses her attention on the duality of two separate, yet identical, entities being instantaneously enmeshed. Using the human body as a means to explore quantum entanglement Maria allows the viewer a simplified understanding of the topic and invites the audience to imagine fantastical applications of this science,” said Valerie Innella Maiers, gallery director and art instructor.

According to Innella Maiers, Rowswell, who works in textile construction, “… gives tactile, three-dimensional representation to concepts that are very small or abstract through installations using textiles. While highlighting whimsy and science fiction, her works combine and contrast natural form with digital logic.”

The exhibitions are currently available for public viewing. Both the reception and lecture will take place in the Zahradnicek Gallery beginning at noon on the 23rd. The exhibitions, reception, and lecture are free and open to the public.

The Goodstein Visual Arts Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The Zahradnicek Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Goodstein Visual Arts Gallery is located in the Goodstein Visual Arts Center, and the Zahradnicek Gallery is located in the Music Building all on the Casper College campus.
