For Galileos Garden: New Works by Tyler and Monica Aiello, opening tonight at Space Gallery, Monicas Ionian Garden series blooming interpretations of the surface of Io, a moon of Jupiters will be juxtaposed with Tylers biologically informed sculptures inspired by microbial, botanical and oceanic forms in a large double exhibition of a size unprecedented in the Denver area. Its planetary science meets Monets garden, Monica says of the show, a product of collected work from the last few years.
Attend the reception from 6 to 9 p.m., or see Galileos Garden at Space, 765 Santa Fe Drive, through June 11. In conjunction with the show, the Aiellos neighbor and scientific adviser Dr. David Grinspoon of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science will present Is There Art on Other Planets?, a talk at the gallery on April 28; the Aiellos will also host a space-art workshop for kids on May 15. Registration is recommended in advance for both. For details, go to www.spacegallery.org or call 720-904-1088.
