INTRODUCTION
Humans, animals, insects, trees, plants, oceans, and air -- indeed, all that we see, taste, smell, touch, and breathe, contain molecular processes of physical transformation; a dynamic dance of change.  This magic of transition, called alchemy by our earliest scientists, became the science of chemistry. It describes both the physical structure and characteristic actions of matter. It allows for all organic and inorganic change to take place -- brain synapses to fire, oxygen to be formed from carbon dioxide and water during photosynthesis; the transformation of gases in our solar system; along with the ability of proteins to turn our genes on/off. If you extend your imagination beyond the epithelial surface of your body, or into the ether that carries cosmic dust, or even into your kitchen, chemistry can inspire wonder. Like a fabulous menu of concocted primordial soups, when exposed to changes in temperature, pressure, or speed, chemistry can create a stick of dynamite or a magnificent souffle!

For this exhibition, we celebrate the International Year of Chemistry by inviting artists and scientists to show us their vision of this deeply fundamental, magical enabler of life called chemistry.


DIGITAL IMAGE DEFINITION:
We are seeking your creativity and imagination that addresses our theme via your computer-made images; digital photos and other digital imaging technologies may be incorporated. Straight digital photos or digitized paintings printed with a digital printer are NOT acceptable. However, you can paint ontop of the digital image or add other flat media techniques. [See info about the museum's frames below.]

DIGITAL OUT-PUT MEDIA: 
We are seeking digital prints on paper only this year. If selected, you will roll your print and ship in a cardboard tube to the museum. Only artworks appropriate for a "family audience." [No explicit sexuality.]

IMAGE SUBMISSION:
Amount of images:  1-5 maximum

ENTRY FEES: 
$20.00 for one image [or "first" image]
$5 each additional image [max. 5 total]
