CFA: Serenity 'Celestial Bodies' DEADLINE SEPT 9

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

SERENITY 'Celestial Bodies'
Artists are invited to submit a body of work that focuses on planets, the sun, the moon, stars and galaxies both real and imagined (as well as metaphors for these objects such as gods/goddesses from mythology, otherworldly planet-scapes and animals/symbols/objects with astronomical associations) as object, inspiration, environment. 
THEMATIC IMAGERY anticipated for this exhibit includes a range of styles from realism to surrealism, from photos of the night sky to paintings, drawings and collage of worlds and galaxies.
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 third in a four part series exploring elements ( air & sky, land & earth, water) and celestial bodies.
