CALL TO ARTISTS - January 5, 2009
A juried exhibition entitled "Creating Synthesis: Exploring Art and Technology". Sometimes the line drawn between art, science, and technology is invisible. This is true not only in the subject matter, but in the materials used to create visual art. The effect technology has on the arts and vice versa is quite profound and points to a direct path in both disciplines evolution. Similarly, the synthesis of spirituality or metaphysics and scientific knowledge is becoming increasingly clear. This is a time of awakening, despite the threat of "automitization" of creative vision. We are calling for art with this realization in mind. We have been extremely fortunate to be creating an exciting, diverse, and active meeting place for artists and viewers alike, in a warm and positive virtual atmosphere since 2003. All mediums except video are eligible.
