The Universe in Color
March 2 - 31, 2013
Opening Reception Saturday, March 2nd, 7-9pm
Grumpy Bert is super excited to share with you a special exhibition that is "literally" out of this world, a solo exhibition with Astrophotographer Robert Gendler titled, The Universe in Color. On display will be true color portraits of distant galaxies, nebulae, star systems and other wonders of the universe located many thousands or millions of light years away.
One of the pieces on display will be The Andromeda Galaxy (M31) which was published in the 2008 Guinness Book of World Records as the largest image (in pixel dimensions) of a spiral Galaxy ever taken.
A Brooklyn native, Gendler is a physician in Connecticut. In 2007 he received the "Hubble Prize" at the Advanced Imaging Conference in San Jose California. He has written three books on astrophotography: "A Year in the Life of the Universe" (2006, Voyageur Press), "Capturing the Stars; Astrophotography by the Masters" (2009, Voyageur Press), and most recently "Treasures of the Southern Sky" (2011, Springer), coauthored with David Malin and Lars Christensen.
