Adrian Center for the Arts is hosting a regional juried exhibition of art depicting the universe, in honor of AC’s property owner and major supporter, PlaneWave Instruments. PlaneWave, which is sponsoring a purchase award, is the leading global designer and manufacturer of telescopes for use by government, research institutions, and high-end amateurs.
Entries may interpret the theme broadly or idiosyncratically and in any visual style. Interpretations may be serious, ironic, or humorous. They might represent phenomena in deep space or depict astronomical or astrophysical theories or instruments, real or imagined. Explore bodies or forms from spiritual texts, myths, folk tales, history, literature, or dreams–as well as the places they reside. Or take a more corporeal turn and muse on what makes human bodies heavenly (or not), inside or out. Submit original works completed within the last three years, in any medium or combination of media.
This could include editioned work but does not include giclee or digital prints of works that exist in total in other media (e.g., no digital prints of your paintings).The ACA gallery is not equipped for projection, video, or time-based media, but if you are able to provide all needed equipment, they may be considered. For more information about what the 1100 square foot gallery can or cannot accommodate, contact
firstname.lastname@example.org. Works previously exhibited in the ACA Gallery are not eligible.
Juror: Jeanette Strezinski is a Detroit-based curator, arts reviewer, and artist. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Michigan State University in 2002 and is the founder of Detroit Industrial Projects, where she collaborates with artists and galleries on exhibitions and community projects.
