CALL TO ARTISTS AND SCIENTISTS
PENCE GALLERY AND UC DAVIS ART/SCIENCE FUSION JURIED EXHIBITION

THE CONSILIENCE OF ART AND SCIENCE 2018
January 26 - March 2, 2018 | Reception: Friday, February 9, 6-9 PM (Awards at 8 PM)

The goals of the exhibition are to show creative work that explores the intersection between art and science; to foster communication between the arts and sciences; and to spark new ways of viewing the world and ourselves. Creative work that transcends pure scientific illustration to explore the conceptual realm where art and science both reside is strongly encouraged.

ELIGIBILITY AND MEDIA

This exhibit is open to all artists and scientists, regardless of residence, who wish to exhibit original 2D and 3D work in any medium, related to the intersection between art and science. This includes photography, drawing, textiles, painting, sculpture, video, and mixed media. Dimension restriction is at the discretion of the jurors.


SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS
All submissions should be online.  A vital part of the submission is the artist’s statement (not to exceed 100 words), which should clearly explain how the work relates to the connection between art and science. The statement may be displayed with the accepted work. Work must be available for the whole run of the exhibit; no substitutions are accepted.

APPLY ONLINE
