Artist Prospectus

Setting aside Albert Einstein’s theory, “relativity” can describe relationships or connections. Something that is relative to something else.

Consider yin and yang; two halves which are bound together because each half contains a part of the other.

For this exhibition, show us your artwork with an emphasis on shape and design as expressed in patterns, reflections and color.

Alternatively, if you want to express Einstein’s theory in art, go for it.
