Rebecca Rutstein works at the intersection of art, science and technology, creating visual experiences that reveal hidden environments in the natural world. This exhibition of her paintings was created through Rutstein’s collaboration with planetary geologist Dr. Julia Cartwright, a NASA-funded professor at The University of Alabama and a Collaborative Arts and Research Initiative (CARI) Fellow. In her research, Cartwright uses multiple techniques to characterize extra-terrestrial materials. She images sections of meteorites to different scales using high-resolution microscopy and petrography techniques.

This exhibition is the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art’s 2022-2023 Farley Moody Galbraith Endowed Exhibition.

Admission to the gallery is free. Hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m. when school is in session. The Sarah Moody Gallery of Art is located at 103 Garland Hall in the heart of UA campus on Woods Quad. Information about visitor parking is available on the UA Parking Services website. Contact the gallery at 348-1891 or visit us online.
