Those of you who create science-based images of nature might be interested in this call for entries.
The New York State Museum hosts a biennial exhibition of natural history artwork called Focus on Nature. Artists all around the world are eligible, and the show has grown to be one of the most prestigious in natural history art.
The upcoming 11th edition will be held April 29- October 31, 2010. The deadline for entries is October 1.
The show includes images of plants, birds, insects, geology, paleontological, and archaeological restorations. All media are considered, and the exhibition is free to enter. Follow this link for the entry form.
