Scales of the Cosmos Gallery Exhibit: Information and Disclaimer form
Curator: Corey Koberna
!!! Important Information !!!
Location: The church, located on the corner of West Duffy and Barnard near Forsyth Park. It was built in
1889 and for many years served as St. Paul's Greek Orthodox Church. The church is now being
renovated into apartments, and our gallery space will be the front area that has not been fully
renovated yet. It provides one large rectangular space, a couple smaller rooms, and a second floor
balcony. If you would like to utilize the architecture of the building in some way (lights, installation, etc.)
let me know. We have the building from now up until the opening weekend so we can work on the
gallery space as a whole over this course of time.
Date: Friday February 19th(Niche, a local band, may be playing)
Saturday February 20th(Main gallery day)
Sunday February 21st.
Gallery Thesis: The purpose of this exhibit is to display the scales of the cosmos in a way that will allow
human beings to broaden their perspective. Humanity as we know it is not very open in terms of
possibilities, ideas and perspectives. We will use the scales of the cosmos to display the things of the
grandest of scales with things of a variety of scales to show humanity where we stand. We view time in
such a specific way that makes earth feel like heaven. If you were to view time at a larger or smaller
scale you may observe chaos. Please research to back up anything you want to say but the sky is the
limit. There are no limits on subject matter. Spirituality, Science, Reality etc. are all fair game. You can
explain why we exist or why we do not. Remember that the purpose of this is to open the minds of
others and their perception of the world around them.
Personal thesis: Please make sure you write a small mini thesis on your work for the viewer relating it to
Mad Bank: Your piece must have a price. It may or may not get sold but please make the price
reasonable. There is a small $5.00 admission fee for each piece you submit. This fee will go towards
setting up the gallery and any left over money will go to the owner who has so generously offered to let
us use the space for free. If the work is sold, 10% of the sale will go towards the Scales of the Cosmos
Gallery Collective for possible prize reward. If you would like to provide more than $5 with your work to
help with expenses, feel free
Next meeting: The next meeting will be held at the gallery location (church on Duffy & Barnard) Friday
