4th ANNUAL ART/SCIENCE TRADING CARD EXHIBIT!
Art.Science.Gallery. is proud to be hosting our Forth Annual Art-Science Trading Card Exhibition + Gallery Fundraiser, which benefits the gallery’s art-science programs. We just launched a Save Art.Science.Gallery. crowd-funding campaign to raise funds to stay open and sign another year lease at our brick-and-mortar location (see www.artsciencegallery.com/save for details). We need your support more than ever, and we look forward to a great fourth trading card show this year! The exhibit will feature hundreds of original, affordable, miniature works of science-inspired art! Send us a mini-work of science-inspired art for our fundraiser and it will live forever in our public online library of Art-Science Trading Cards (http://artscitradingcards.tumblr.com/) and it will be included in our exhibition.
Art.Science.Gallery. Curatorial Statement (applies to all exhibits)
Art.Science.Gallery. seeks artwork that is steeped in and reflective of scientific ideas. The science should be apparent in the works. We strive to exhibit work that exemplifies the integration of scientific knowledge and discovery with a very thorough artistic process. While art with partial scientific narrative or imagery with limited artistic process is accepted for review, it will not be as highly ranked in our selection process.
What are we looking for?
- First, keep our mission statement in mind. We want to engage the public in the sciences through the visual arts.
- We want to see that there’s a sense of study of the subject in the artwork. Show through the artistic process that the artist is learning something about the subject.
- Works with thoughtful design and choice of medium, as well as evidence of the artist’s hand in making the work will also be more highly ranked.
What are we not looking for?
- We do not want work that is copied from stock images or photos, we are looking for artistic interpretations of the callout subject.
- Work where either the science or the artistry is completely lacking and there is no integration of the two will not be considered.
