THE NORTHERN ARTIST GALLERY | SCIENCE NORTH

The Northern Artist Gallery and Science North in Sudbury, Ontario are now accepting submissions to the TNAG Emerging Artist Program.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR WILD WEATHER: MARCH 21, 2016

EMERGING ARTIST PROGRAM
The TNAG Emerging Artist Program is a partnership between The Northern Artist Gallery and Science North to support and promote emerging artists from Northern Ontario. The program presents four exhibitions annually, each three months in length. All work will be exhibited in Science North's Sunwalk.

WILD WEATHER
Science North will host its newest travelling exhibition Wild Weather this summer.. The science between severe weather is entering the cusp of the most exciting time in modern meteorology. New technology and computer modelling techniques are allowing scientists to discover and forecast severe weather like never before. Through experiments, challenges, models, computer interactive, multimedia experiences, visitors of all ages will delve into current severe weather science. Visitors will discover cutting-edge technology used to forecast weather events and investigate the stories and equipment of weather seekers –the scientists, forecasters, broadcasters, and the passionate seekers and enthusiasts.
Science North/TNAG will be presenting a group art exhibition to coincide with the Wild Weather exhibition. Works submitted must reference the theme, and may include: lightning, thunderstorms, snow, blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes, heat, drought, and climate. The exhibition also explores the impact severe weather has on people, communities, and environments.
Work chosen to accompany the Wild Weather exhibit will be on display at Science North from May – July 2016.
