The Two Wall Gallery on Vashon Island, Wash., has issued a “call for artists” who also are geologists (or other geoscientists) to submit works for an upcoming show titled “Geo Sapiens – The Fusion of Geology and Art,” planned for November 2009.
The show’s theme centers on the idea of incorporating geologic principles or features in artworks, building upon the observation that earth scientists think in ways that often are different from the general population but fundamental to a collective understanding of the universe.
Works that incorporate geology to make definitive statements regarding issues of relevance to human society are appropriate, as are works that simply celebrate geologic thought.
Works in all media are invited. Entry is open to all degreed earth scientists and students studying earth science topics. You do not have to be a practicing or employed geologist to apply. Up to three works may be submitted as slides or on a CD. Works should be available for sale unless other arrangements are made.
For more information contact Greg Wessel.
Submissions will be accepted until Sept. 1.
