CCC Atrium Gallery
The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center and the Hometown Science Festival have collaborated on a very different kind of exhibit. Artists of all ages and levels of experience were invited to enter one piece in any medium which shows their interpretation of the Golden Ratio. The exhibit will be on display from November 4-26th. We would love to see a child’s work displayed next to their grandparent’s artwork, amateurs next to professionals. The goal of the Hometown Science Festival is to show individuals that science is in their lives every day. Our hope is that this exhibit will reinforce that message and show viewers how art, science, and math can intersect to produce beautiful results.
If you are interested in entering something into this exhibit, you still have a tiny bit of time! Drop-off for artwork is Thursday, November 2 from 12-6PM. This is truly an open call for submissions. There is no fee for entering.
Entries must relate to the theme of the Golden Ratio. All 2-dimensional work should be able to be hung on the wall. Any 3-dimensional pieces should be stable enough to sit on a flat surface without support. Artists will need to fill out a form with their contact information when they drop off their artwork, and will be expected to pick up their artwork at the end of the exhibit.
Exhibits at The Gmeiner are not insured, so artwork is displayed at the artist’s risk. Please ensure that your work is ready for display by the drop-off date. All pieces should be signed and dated, and they should have the title on the back. Paint or photographs should be dry. Photographs of children will only be displayed with signed consent from their parent/guardian.
Only work completed in the past five years will be accepted. Pieces that have already been displayed at the Gmeiner in group or regional shows will not be displayed again.
*The Gmeiner reserves the right to refuse any work.*
Artist are encouraged to offer their work for sale. The Gmeiner’s sales commission is 20% on all items sold during the exhibit. Please price your work accordingly. You will receive a check for the overall total, including tax and minus the Gmeiner’s commission, within two weeks after the end of the exhibit.
