Celestial |Terrestrial

Since the Age of Exploration discoverers and artists are mesmerized by the Celestial |Terrestrial. Collectively, we stared at the oceans and became watchers of the skies; we developed systems to chart, measure, and calculate the position of where we are, someplace we have been—and most importantly—aim to arrive.

Our ability to brave the unknown made us cross Oceans of Ignorance to increase our knowledge and mastery of the world. In both science and arts, we became land seekers, maritime navigators, airspace cosmonauts, and virtual wanderers.

In that era of magnificent achievement, artists, poets, scientists, competed and collaborated searching for knowledge of the Celestial |Terrestrial. In our contemporary era of hybrid achievements, our discoveries and creations are relentlessly and inevitably converging. As Discoverers and Creators, we are moved by a sense of curiosity and wonder in an eternal voyage that connects us by land, air, sea—and by virtual networks.

We invite printmakers to share prints that reflect the sense of wonder, as we all march in the same direction to understand the complexities of the sensible world we all inhabit.

Artists will create full-bleed horizontal or vertical diptychs addressing the proximities and divergencies of the Celestial |Terrestrial.
