Artistic Tuesday - Phytopathological and Art????

>> Monday, March 29, 2010

Searching the internet for a topic this week I ran across this interesting art contest sponsored by the American Phytopathological Society (APS).  These are the people who study plant disease!  Who knew they were into art!!!  Unfortunately I can not enter, you have to be a member of APS and I am only a Wanna Be Mater Gardener and a backyard artist!

Here are the categories. I especially like #4!

  • Microscopy—SEM and other microscopy images.
  • Whole plant/nature—from the field to greenhouses and pathogens in nature.
  • Digitally altered—changes to the original image, e.g., changing the natural color, orientation, kaleidoscope effects, cloning images, etc.
  • Wacky/humor—plant pathogens represented in slightly less scientific ways.
  • Crafts—hand made objects out of various materials representing phytopathology subjects.
  • Art—paintings, drawings, sculptures, and other forms of physical art.
Seriously - what a great idea to infuse the creative with the scientific!  Check out the website for more detailed information.  2010 Art in Phytopathology Contest  .
