Greg has asked me to pass this along. It sounds pretty cool! Let me know if any of you are thinking of submitting something. I would love to see what kinds of entry's they get. It can't get much better than geology + art!

Announcement and Call for Artistic Geologists
Two Wall Gallery on Vashon Island, Washington, announces a call for artists for an upcoming exhibit entitled Geo sapiens, The Fusion of Geology and Art, to be shown during November, 2009.
The theme is centered on incorporating geologic principles or features in art, building upon the observation that earth scientists think in ways that are different from the general public but fundamental to our understanding of the universe. Works that incorporate geology to make statements regarding an issue of relevance to society are appropriate, as are works that simply celebrate geologic thought.
Works in all media are invited. Entry is open to degreed earth scientists and students studying earth science topics. You do not have to be a practicing or employed geologist to apply. All earth science professionals (geophysicists, geochemists, petrologists, paleontologists, etc) are included in our invitation.
Up to three works may be submitted as slides or on a CD. For a complete prospectus and submission directions, contact Greg Wessel at SleepingDogCafe@aol.com. Submissions will be accepted until August 1, 2009.
