Call for Entries: The Art Science of Color at Whitaker Center


PDF of call for entries here: The Art & Science of Color Call for Entries

The vastness of color, whether it is reflected, projected, or processed, presents a distinct opportunity for individual perceptions. Often it is the essence of mood, a lens through which we understand the material world. As optical science continues to expand our understanding of color as a physical phenomenon, the potential for artists to utilize color as a tool for expression is boundless. We ask each artist to consider the subtle possibilities of color at the heart of a work of art, and the long-lasting sensory impressions left on the viewer.

The Art & Science of Color will be a juried DŌSHI Gallery exhibition on view at Whitaker Center from June 12 – August 22, 2014. During the Susquehanna Art Museum’s transitional period into our new location in Midtown, Harrisburg, we are continuing to collaborate with area arts organizations for exhibitions and educational programming space.

Important Dates:

  • Thursday, May 1: Deadline for submissions. No late submissions will be reviewed.
  • Monday, May 26: Selected work must be delivered during pre-arranged appointment times.


A submission fee of $15 is required. Send a non-refundable check made out to Susquehanna Art Museum to SAM, c/o Lauren Nye, PO Box 11818, Harrisburg, PA 17108, with “Submission Fee” in the memo or you can pay using Paypal below.
