"A Marriage of Art and Science," featuring works by artist Barbara MacCallum, opens May 24 at the Old Dominion University Gallery with a reception at 7 p.m. The artist will be on hand for the event, which is free and open to the public. The exhibition continues through June 22.

This multimedia installation consists of body casts of the artist's husband, Robert, a physics professor at the University of Virginia. MacCallum has used paper printed with his recently published science theory to construct the casts. The relationship between art and science is reconsidered by MacCallum's obliteration of the usual function of the papers and her reconfiguring of science into art.

MacCallum has widely exhibited her work throughout Virginia, as well as Peru, New York, Texas and Hawaii. She has won the Virginia Commission for the Arts Individual Artist Grant and the NEA/SECCA Artist-in-Residence Grant. Her works can be viewed at http://www.hometown.aol.com/bfmaccallum.

The University Gallery, located at 350 W. 21st St., Norfolk, is open noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; noon to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 1-4 p.m. Sunday. For
