What can you do outside that you can’t do inside?
  •  

-Work that crawls, falls, swings, sways, or climbs


-Work that disappears by midnight

 

Your work can fall into one or more of these guidelines, which you can interpret as loosely as you’d like. We accept all mediums. Installation and performance based art is accepted and encouraged. Feel free to submit numerous pieces, just indicate it on the form.

 

The website and form for submissions is here. We will get back to you with transportation and installation arrangements as soon as possible.

Curator Selection: May 15, 2017

Theme: “Flowers, Plants & Gardens” – Flowers and plants have inspired visual artists and photographers throughout history to create some of their most beautiful, emotional, and memorable works of art.  Regardless of art form, when an artist becomes “blocked,” nature frequently offers him or her a new spiritual foundation and inspiration as they pursue their creative journey. Flowers, plants, and gardens symbolize continual rebirth, fresh beginnings, fragile persistence, and alluring symmetry. Whether it is a single flower, a garden in full aromatic bloom or a “shy” plant on a window sill, there is no mistaking the awesome complexity of the planet’s precious myriad types of vegetation.  This abundance of flowers and greenery inspires and challenges the creative mind to redefine and/or simply glorify their splendor.

 

Eligibility & Mediums: This competition is open to all artists and photographers 18 years of age or older. Submissions for consideration can be expressed in any of the following aspects: representational, expressionism, surrealism, or abstraction. Entries must be created in any still medium, e.g., paint, drawing, photography, sculpture, installation, digital, collage, or fiber art.
