The curators invite artists to submit works of art around the theme of "blue mind". Blue Mind is "a mildly meditative state characterized by calm, peace, unity, and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction with life in the moment". It is brought on by time spent near, in, on, and under water. The 3rd on 3rd Gallery in Jamestown NY is located close to both Lake Chautauqua and Lake Erie and Jamestown also features a beautiful new urban river walk. We invite art that celebrates the beauty and joy of water in all its forms!

The Blue Mind groundswell was founded by marine biologist, Wallace J. Nichols who has spent much of his life with and is well known for, his work in sea turtle conservation. He wrote the book, Blue Mind - The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better At What You Do.

The aim of this movement is to connect (or reconnect) people to water as a means of enriching their lives on an emotional, mental, spiritual, and social level. With this connection comes a deep love for our waters. (And by loving our waters, we then become good stewards of our waters.) You can find out more about Blue Mind at
