Opening April 25: Gallery showcases VCU scientists' microscopic images

April 10, 2014

Anders Hånell, Ryan Clohessy and Gireesh Reddy are recipients of prizes and best in show honors in "Through the Looking Glass,” a VCU Libraries contest and exhibition of microscopic images created by VCU students, faculty and staff.

Prize winners will be honored at the opening reception Friday, April 25, 3 to 4:30 p.m. It is free and open to all.

The works will remain on view at Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences through December 2014.

The exhibit was organized by Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences, which invited submissions of microscopic images earlier this year. Images were analyzed and scored by Scott Henderson, Lara Mabry, Rene Olivares-Navarrete and Ning Zhang on the basis of aesthetic appeal, technical skill and scientific significance.

More than 40 images were submitted for consideration, and 24 are featured in the exhibit.

Scientists whose images are on view are:

  • Sarah Ayad, student, biomedical engineering
  • Alexander Burkard, student, biology
  • Sarah Cameron, student, biomedical engineering
  • Alice Cheng, student, biomedical engineering
