Techne is a juried exhibition examining the relationship between art and science as methods of making sense of the world around us.
Deadline: 28 Apr 2018
Participating artists are asked to create an original piece of artwork that is related to science in some aspect. Examples include a new artistic technique in relation to a scientific study or theory, the use of non-traditional materials in the creation of a piece, or the exploration of a scientific notion in the process of making. The goal should be a pursuit of new concepts and technologies within science and art together which change fundamentally how we perceive our experience and/or reality.
There is no age restriction. Applicants under 18 years old will need a parent or guardian’s consent. The jurors for this exhibit come from a wide variety of backgrounds in both art and science to encourage diversity in selections.
- First Place: $250 and a solo show at Arthaus Projects in 2019

About Arthaus Projects
This year, 2018, marks the inaugural year of Arthaus Projects. They are a new, non-profit artspace developed by the founder of Converge Gallery. It is inspired by the Staatliches Bauhaus (commonly known as Bauhaus), a German art school that famously combined crafts and fine arts teaching with an emphasis on design. Arthaus Projects makes fine, contemporary art accessible to the local community. They provide community education through exhibitions, colloquia, and collaborative projects. Arthaus Projects takes a project-based approach to our exhibitions. They combine interactive exhibits such as artist talks and live demonstrations with traditional gallery installations. As a community resource, Arthaus Projects provides greater career opportunities in the arts for students and artists. They promote innovative, contemporary ideas by providing both a venue for displaying art and through auxiliary activities such as artist’s talks and workshops.

About Smithtown Township Arts Council
Smithtown Township Arts Council operates Mills Pond Gallery in an historic Greek Revival building built in 1838. Adaptation of Mills Pond House for public use has introduced modern mechanical systems to the structure without impairing its historic integrity. Gallery lighting and handicapped access have been designed to complement the original building. Notable among the ca. 1838 Grecian details are the gold-veined marble mantelpieces, ornamental plater centres applied to the ceilings, and front and rear stoops supported by wooden Doric columns.
Mills Pond house preserves the locality’s name, but departs from tradition in other respects. Its high-style Grecian design is unusual on Long Island. The hand of an accomplished architect is nearly unique at this early date. Pollard’s influence is seen in the use of imported materials: Albany boards, Carolina yellow pine, English glass, Connecticut stone, and Santo Domingan mahogany. The silvered hardware, decorative plaster, and carpeting were bought in New York City shops. William Wickham Mills died in 1865. His home descended in the family until its gift to the Town of Smithtown in 1976. Today, it is preserved for use as an arts-related facility.
