Mesa’s SunDust gallery seeks sci-fi/fantasy art for ‘Imagination’ exhibit, opening on downtown’s ‘Sci-Fi Friday’

Best of East ValleySunDust Gallery in downtown Mesa — a Best Of East Valley winner for best place to start an art collection due to its Basement Art Outlet — is seeking entries for a juried exhibition called “Imagination” that is sure to draw works inspired by sci-fi and fantasy topics.

The exhibit is open to original artwork by an Arizona artist completed in the last three years, and can represent photography, painting, sculpture, drawing or any form of 2-D or 3-D work, including silversmithing, blacksmith work and jewelry. Here’s how the gallery describes it:

A form of fantasy and science fiction that invites readers to pretend objects of the mind are from an imaginary world. Albert Einstein said, “Imagination … is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. In reality almost all art is imaginary because creativity is from your imagination, perceived individually. The subject matter does not have to be confined to fantasy or science fiction to be imagination…

For full submission guidelines, see the exhibit prospectus at the gallery’s website. “Imagination” runs April 8 to May 2 at SunDust Gallery, 48 W. Main St., No. 100. Opening on Second Friday means it will coincide with downtown Mesa’s monthly block party — which, for April, will carry the theme of “Sci-Fi Friday.” Evermore Nevermore (another Best of East Valley winner) is also seeking artists for its sci-fi fashion show and “Dark Side of Star Wars” exhibit — and, of course, steampunk artisans are sought for Steampunk Street II.
