Competitions Techne: A Juried Exhibition Examining Art and Science
NOTE: This opp listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!
International Deadline: April 28, 2018 – Techne is a juried exhibition examining the relationship between art and science as methods of making sense of the world around us.
Participating artists are asked to create an original piece of artwork in any medium that is related to science in some aspect. Examples include (but are not limited to) a new artistic technique in relation to a scientific study or theory, the use of non traditional materials in the creation of a piece, or the exploration of a scientific notion in the process of making. The goal should be a pursuit of new concepts and technologies, within science and art together, to fundamentally change how we perceive our experience and/or reality.
This is a juried visual art competition and exhibition that is open to two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and digital artists, with no age restrictions (under 18 year old applicants will need a parent or guardian’s consent and signature on the back of this form to apply), working in any medium, including painting, drawing, printmaking, metal or wood working, photography, sculpture, etching, video, etc. The medium is pretty much wide open, however performance art is not an acceptable medium for this exhibition. Work may not exceed the size of 35” wide x 82” high unless it can be broken down and re-assembled within the gallery. (Basically if we can’t get it through our front door, we cannot exhibit it).
First Prize – $250 and 2019 exhibition at Arthaus Projects. Second Prize – $150. Third Prize – $75. All entries that are not selected for the exhibition will be displayed as part of an online exhibition.
Artists may submit up to three (3) works for the non-refundable fee of $25 or (1) work for the non-refundable fee of $10.
All entries must be submitted electronically. No physical work will be accepted for the initial jurying process. Exhibition inclusions will be juried from digital media, so quality is essential.
The Gallery will take 30% commission on sale of work. All sales inquiries will be handled through the gallery.
Arthaus Projects, a new, non-profit artspace developed by the founder of Converge Gallery. Inspired by the Staatliches Bauhaus (commonly known as Bauhaus), a German art school that famously combined crafts and fine arts teaching with an emphasis on design, Arthaus Projects strives to make fine, contemporary art accessible to the local community. More than that, Arthaus Projects seeks to provide community education through exhibitions, colloquia and collaborative projects. Arthaus Projects takes a project-based approach to our exhibitions combining interactive exhibits (such as artist talks and live demonstrations) with traditional gallery installations.
