Since when did art and science go hand in hand? Ask Art Bacon. Art has always been his passion , and he studied it while he earned his AB in Biology from Talladega College, a Ph.D. from Howard University and completed a postdoctural from the University of Miami. He returned to Talladega College as chair of biology but began showing and winning. Now he teaches art classes as well. His bio says it all, "I realized that without art , my science would suffer."
I met Art at the Lite Box Gallery at the Pepper Place. His work is so very interesting. I especially admired the photo behind him and a vibrant abstract full of red, oh and a watermelon still life. Actually I liked them all! I'd like to spend more time with Art Bacon.
I've met a new blog friend today. Our friend Selim's, ( Izmir, Turkey Daily Photo) daughter has her very own photoblog. I've been a fan of Selim's fabulous photographs for quite some time. I am thrilled to see he has passed his passion for photography on to his 10 year old daughter Alim. Give her a visit!
