Space Exploration Art Gallery

Welcome to the Space Exploration Art Gallery. The Space Exploration Art Gallery contains art for which the central theme is the human exploration of space. It was my childhood interest in space exploration and space art that is partially responsible for my ongoing interest in art and its creation.

I count among my favorite space artists, as opposed to astronomical artists, Chesley Bonestell, Pat Rawlings, Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean, and Robert McCall. I consider myself fortunate to have been able to meet and spend some time with all of these artists - with the single exception being Chesley Bonestell.

“There is no way back into the past; the choice, as Wells once said, is the universe or nothing. Though men and civilizations may yearn for rest, for the dream of the lotus-eaters, that is a desire that merges imperceptibly into death. The challenge of the great spaces between the worlds is a stupendous one; but if we fail to meet it, the story of our race will be drawing to its close.”

Arthur C. Clarke, Interplanetary Flight, 1950
