Call For Art


Robots are coming! They may already be here, taking our jobs and silently plotting to become our cybernetic overlords! Yeah right. Everyone knows that technology performs poorly in the field.

Call for Art! Robots! @Fiction Science Gallery

Fiction Science Gallery is seeking works with and about Robots! to hang in the gallery in late July through August. Paintings, drawings, photography, video, prints or wall mounted assemblage are all perfect for the gallery walls. Real robots are OK as long as they aren't the "killer robot" kind intent on the destruction of all humans.

Submission Deadline: July 15, 2017

Contact DC Spensley:

Artwork drop-off ready to hang: July 22, 2017 11AM to 1PM
