Monthly Art Exhibit  -  Beth Burnside
A native of San Antonio, Texas, Beth Burnside pursued a career in science and administration until her retirement from the University of California Berkeley in 2009. Since then she has been pleased to be free to pursue her long neglected interests in Art and Photography. For her Ph.D. studies at the University of Texas, Austin, she used light and electron microscopy to characterized the way the cells of the developing nervous system change shape to produce the precursors of the brain and spinal cord. Later she studied the elongation and contraction of the long slender rods and cones of the fish retina in response to light. A lifetime of studying the elegant ballet performances of these beautiful nerve cells has led her to be fascinated with the interplay of time and natural form. The photographs in this exhibit explore the haunting of nature by time.

Holiday Hours & Closures
The Faculty Club's office and dining calendars generally follow the UC Berkeley Academic Calendar, whereby we close on the same national and academic/administrative holidays. The Faculty Club does, however, remain open and offer full service during most of Spring Break and through the summer. The Faculty Club Hotel remains open throughout the year.
