SHOW DETAILS


Art of the Cosmos will feature 25 International artists in the fields of Painting, Sculpture, Glass, Music, Video, Digital, Light, Mixed Media, Photography, Drawing and Other - all inspired by the dynamic images from the Hubble Space Telescope.


Our intention is to design a show that is not only beautiful to look at, but one that also generates thought and inspiration by encouraging engagement and inquiry. Our goal with Art of the Cosmos is to feed all of the senses, mind, body, heart and spirit and to activate creativity and curiosity in all who attend ... As well as within the artists who participate.

THINK 'SCALE'


An art show about The Universe, requires Scale to inspire. We are looking for large, dramatic pieces, (that are innovative and thoughtful) to capture the feel of Space, so please keep that in mind when you apply. 

If you work in smaller formats, please consider how we might group your work in multiples for higher impact.

**Please also note that we are open to all approaches and concepts. We invite you to share your unique ideas, innovative expressions and creative approaches in your work and encourage you to not only consider the 'literal' interpretations generated by the Hubble imagery, but to also consider other interpretations that invite inquiry into Myth, Symbolism, Culture, Evolution and Consciousness. 

If you do not work in a 'traditional media' then feel free to apply in the 'Other' category.

PITCH A 'CONCEPT' IF YOU HAVE ONE


We will be inviting artists based on 'a body' of work, so send us your best stuff. HOWEVER ... if you have an idea, for an awesome piece, but haven't created it yet, then please include a concept image, or maquette in your application. Be sure to include a detailed description of the concept in your application, including size, media and installation requirements.

If we are interested in your 'Concept proposal' and your body of work is a fit, then we will contact you for a personal interview to discuss the Concept further.

**Also be mindful that if we should accept your Concept piece, that it would need to be completed and ready to install by end of February 2020.
