Art Exhibit at the Devonian Botanic Garden
Rooted II: Perspectives on the Natural World
Call to artists in any medium to share their visions of the natural world at the University of Alberta Devonian Botanic Garden in an outdoor art exhibit to be held on July 21, 2013. "Rooted II: Perspectives on the Natural World", is an annual juried show that explores the artist's relationship to nature. While it is anticipated that many submissions will focus on visual media, we welcome and encourage submissions in other forms. Show us how you love the world in paint, in textile, in photography, in mixed media, in word or with sound - or surprise us. Consideration will be given to artistic merit and quality work that represents unique, unusual and varied responses to the natural world.
There is no charge for participation in this exhibit. Artists are welcome to sell their work, but must have a method of receiving their own payments. Tents, tables and chairs are provided. Artists are responsible for their own displays and must be present at the Garden from 9am until 5pm. Artists are welcome and encouraged to work en plein air during the event.
Submit three sample works, accompanied by a 150 word artist statement and bio, by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with "Rooted" in the subject line.
Call (780) 987-3054 ext. 2224 or email for more information.
Submission deadline: May 29, 2013
