Subject:   Shakespeare and Art - Brush with Science

Dear SHAKSPER folks,

Recently, I have become friends with a professional artist named Julie 
Newdoll, whose work "merges life science and culture, myths and 
molecules in her paintings and journal covers." Her website, titled 
"Brush with Science," can be found at 
http://www.brushwithscience.com/index.html. About six months ago, Julie 
became interested in painting scenes from Shakespeare that would 
thematically mesh with her scientific interests. Over the last several 
months, we began to collaborate on ideas for paintings, and she is 
currently working on a painting from Act 3, scene 3 of _Hamlet_, as well 
as researching the scientific portion of a painting from a scene in _The 
Tempest_. Moving forward, she has outlined plans for paintings to 
include scenes from the Henriad, Macbeth, King Lear, Midsummer Night's 
Dream, and several other plays. Approximately 20 paintings have been 
outlined for the series.

I bring this work to the attention of the list because I am wondering if 
there is anyone who knows of a venue that would be particularly 
interested in displaying Shakespearean art of this nature. Julie is 
based in the San Francisco Bay Area, but national and international 
venues would be of interest, of course. Replies, questions, or comments 
may be sent to me off-list at
