Arthaus Projects, the new non-profit art space from the founder of Converge Gallery, is excited to continue the tradition started by Converge with their third annual juried exhibition, Techne. Techne explores the relationship between science and art as methods of making sense of the world around us.

Participating artists are asked to create an original piece of artwork that is related to science in some aspect. Examples include (but are not limited to) a new artistic technique in relation to a scientific study or theory, the use of non traditional materials in the creation of a piece, or the exploration of a scientific notion in the process of making. The goal should be a pursuit of new concepts and technologies, within science and art together, to fundamentally change how we perceive our experience and/or reality.

This is a juried visual art competition and exhibition that is open to two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and digital artists working in any medium except performance art. There is no age restriction, but applicants under 18 years old will need a parent or guardian’s consent.

Awards:
First Prize: $250 and a 2019 exhibition at Arthaus Projects
Second Prize: $150
Third Prize: $75
All entries that are not selected for the exhibition will be displayed as part of an online exhibition on the Arthaus Projects website.

About Arthaus Projects

2018 marks the inaugural year of Arthaus Projects, a new, non-profit artspace developed by the founder of Converge Gallery. Inspired by the Staatliches Bauhaus (commonly known as Bauhaus), a German art school that famously combined crafts and fine arts teaching with an emphasis on design, Arthaus Projects makes fine, contemporary art accessible to the local community, and provides community education through exhibitions, colloquia and collaborative projects. Arthaus Projects takes a project-based approach to our exhibitions, combining interactive exhibits such as artist talks and live demonstrations with traditional gallery installations.

So why Arthaus Projects? Because a gallery doesn’t define what we do for the Williamsport arts scene. As a community resource, Arthaus Projects provides greater career opportunities in the arts for students, emerging artists and established artists that promote innovative, contemporary ideas.

Arthaus Projects is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization continuing the legacy of Converge Gallery as the next stage in the evolution of the Lycoming County arts scene.

The gallery is located at 140 West Fourth Street, Williamsport, PA and gallery hours are Monday-Thursday 9:00am-5:00pm, Friday 9:00am-6:00pm, and Saturday from 11:00am-5:00pm.
