Quotes:

 “ Inspired by Leonard Shlains’s 1993 book….BenAmots dreamt of curating an exhibit that explored the relationship between physics and art…..From painted geometrical symphony of local artist Jay Miller to the industrial scenes of Wyoming’s David Jones, PPCC’s new exhibit, ARITHMaTIC Visions: Physics Engineering Art, fulfills her vision.”

“An eclectic group of installation artists (in Senses & Sensitivities exhibit at the PPCC Downtown Studio Art Gallery)…create emotional visual and intellectual dialogues engaging a variety of senses resulting in an explosion of multi-layered responses.”
