CFA: Serenity 'earth' - Deadline FEB 19
UCSF Women's Health Center San Francisco -- Feb 10, 2012 --


CFA: Serenity 'earth' DEADLINE FEB 17

UCSF Women's Health Center in San Francisco and McKinley Art Solutions presents:

SERENITY 'earth'
Artists are invited to submit a body of work that focuses on the non-water, non-vapor substrates that shape our planet and environments.  Whether man-made (like concrete) or naturally occuring (dirt, clay, mud, rock, metals and minerals) this installment of the Serenity series seeks submissions exploring 'earth' as object, inspiration, environment. 
THEMATIC IMAGERY anticipated for this exhibit includes a range from traditonal landscapes to material and surface studies of natural materials (e.g., rock, sand, trees, plants, flowers, metal, etc).
NOTE: For planetary images artists are encouraged to apply to the 'Celestial Bodies' installment of this series (July - Aug, 2012) 
Sponsored by the UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health, each part in the series invites Bay Area artists to present a body of work that interprets the idea of ‘serenity’ in order to inspire relaxation, well-being and calm.   This is the second in a four part series exploring elements ( air & sky, land & earth, water) and celestial bodies.
