BAR HARBOR — Artist Terry Hilt will be the featured speaker at the second Art Meets Science Café, presented by the MDI Biological Laboratory on Monday, July 27, at 5 p.m.
Hilt’s work is influenced by the constant motion and force of the landscape — the physics of gravity, velocity and electricity as these create continual movement with the sea, fields and sky. In this café, Hilt will take participants on an exploration of her use of strong lines and richly applied watercolor as medium.
The series of informal talks is modeled after their popular Science Cafés and features a presentation by an artist whose work is influenced by science, an invitation for the audience to participate in discussion, refreshments and an opportunity to view this year’s exhibition of works by 40 Maine, national and international artists based on the theme “Is it Art or is it Science?” The Café will take place in the Kinne Library on the Salisbury Cove campus.
Born in Bar Harbor, Hilt is a many generation Maine native, a graduate of the University of Maine at Orono, Boston University, and received her doctorate from the University of Maryland School of Social Work. She is a psychotherapist, an artist and published poet.
The series is offered in partnership with Littlefield Gallery and is sponsored by The First and First Advisors.
