Event Description

Imagine being able to stargaze on any night in Earth’s history, seeing how constellations appeared millions of years in the past or the future, or taking in the views of alien skies from remote planets elsewhere in the Galaxy.  A new art exhibit on display in Portland’s Pearl District for the month of October will allow you to do just that.  Artist, author, and astronomer Erik Anderson from Ashland Astronomy Studio will be on hand to introduce an art exhibit of Galactic proportions! Illustrations from his highly acclaimed astronomy book, Vistas of Many Worlds, A Journey Through Space and Time, are portrayed on metal prints--a modern art medium created from custom-shaped aluminum sheets.

Anderson, who has previously co-published several articles in peer-reviewed astrophysics journals, uses a vast database of stars and computer-generated imagery to create the intriguing scenarios that fill his highly-acclaimed book.  Copies of the book, which he will sign during the Oct. 3rd reception, are available for purchase at Will Call.  Star Maps and 2014 Moon Calendars by the same artist are also available for purchase.

“Vistas of Many Worlds is an original approach to learning about our place in the universe and contemplating the vast possibilities beyond the frontiers of knowledge,” says Anderson.  The show is sure to delight both amateur stargazers and avid space science enthusiasts.

While you're visiting, we also invite you to partake in some wine tasting!  Troon Vineyard will be joining us on this First Thursday event with bottles of Vermentino and Druid's Fluid for you to sample.
