National Science Week

Scatter, now showing at Mrs Harris' Shop in Torrensville, is glass artist Alex Valero's debut solo exhibition.

It's clean and simple, a beautiful exhibition of hot-formed, cut and polished glass pieces that explore the material's relationship with light.

not only features in the SALA program for 2015, but it is also part of the South Australian program for National Science Week (15 23 August).

It is one of many events in the Science Week program that reflect its theme, Making Waves the science of light, in this, the International Year of Light.

It is appropriate that Alex's exhibition is included in the program.
His sculptural works are inspired by mathematics and science, especially the material's capacity to contain light.

He says 'Glass has a deep connection with light. As a material, it allows the artist to sculpt light, creating work that emits or reflects light in beautiful ways.'

His works explore the ways this amazing material has been used to tame light for scientific and creative pursuits.
