Out Of This World

Propeller Gallery

“ Space… is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.”

OutOfThisWorld Prop

2018 marks a century-and- a-half of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada's (RASC) promotion of astronomy and allied sciences in Canada. From early on, the RASC has encouraged exploring the connections of astronomy with other areas of culture, an interest which continues to the present. Both amateur and professional astronomers produce visually arresting material combined with deeply engaging ideas that spark a sense of awe and wonder. Artists are engaged and inspired by both the visual and conceptual elements of this work.

Out Of This World  calls for art inspired by all things astronomical. All media are welcome.
