When you look under a microscope, you not only see microbes, but you also have an opportunity to think about the vast world microbial. I aim to bring some of these thoughts to our macroscopic world using agar art (paintings made with microbes) while also pulling from found objects, photography, and ink illustrations. Through conceptual scientific and medical artwork, I aim to remind viewers that we as humans, as microbial holobionts and stewards, cannot be divorced from the ecosystems of which we are a part.

Sarah Adkins-Jablonsky earned her PhD funded by the National Science Foundation where she discovered agar art (paintings made with microbes) helps students perceive science. Her science artwork has recently been exhibited in Birmingham, AL (2022); Greensboro, AL (2020); Selma, AL (2020); Columbiana, AL (2020); and Madison, WI (2019) with awards from American Society for Microbiology, Sigma Xi Art and Film Festival, FEMS Microbiology. She is a member of Ground Floor Contemporary in Birmingham, Alabama, and lives and works in Dothan, Alabama.
