Bettina Forget (Visual Arts – Past President) is a visual artist, gallery owner, art educator, and researcher living and working in Montreal. Bettina owns and runs Visual Voice Gallery. Located in downtown Montreal, Visual Voice Gallery presents contemporary art exhibitions, which create a dialogue between art and science. In 2018 she joined the Convergence – Perceptions in Neuroscience Initiative as Director of Fine Art, where she aims to foster interdisciplinary thought and push the boundaries of what is considered science and art. Since 2016 Bettina is the art/science researcher for the SETI Institute’s Artist-in-Residence program. In this capacity, she investigates idea translation between collaborating artists and scientists, and investigates different models of knowing. She is currently pursuing a PhD in Art Education at Concordia University, Canada. Her research project examines the re-contextualization of art and science, and how women and girls may connect to STEM subjects through MakerEducation. Bettina’s creative work focuses on space sciences, inspired by her avid engagement with amateur astronomy. She has exhibited her artwork in the USA, Canada, Germany, Iceland, Singapore, and Nicaragua.
