Art and Science are seen as two opposite parts of life but can we find how they connect? Is it a close up photo of something under a microscope or maybe a painting of the human nervous system resembling a tree’s root system. This year we want to see how the elements of life connect and can be expressed through artistic mediums. We ask all artists to write a description on how your artwork relates to the theme.


We are accepting 1-2 works per artist. 
2D framed work and 3D work will be accepted.
2D work - maximum framed dimension 48” in the longest direction including frame.
3D work - 3D work must not exceed 32”H and fit within a 24” footprint to display securely on gallery pedestals. If you have larger floor standing 3D work, please call the gallery to discuss. All work must be created within the last 5 years and not shown at the Levy Gallery for 2 years.
