Artists sought for garden art exhibit

Written by 

The Haywood County Arts Council is joining with the Haywood County Master Gardener Volunteer Association for an exhibit in April 2012 to feature various mediums of art representing gardens to be featured on the Master Gardener Volunteer Association’s June 2012 Garden Tour.

Interested artists should email photograph samples (72dpi) of their work for jurying to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Nov. 1. Photos should be of work created in the last 12 months.

Selected artists will be asked to create up to three art pieces for the April 2012 exhibition using the tour gardens as subject matter. Work must be for sale and homeowners of the gardens will have first option to purchase the works.

The theme for the 2012 Garden Tour is “Mountains and Streams.” This is a unique opportunity for artists working with paint, clay, glass, metal, wood, sculpture, or textiles to interpret segments of the featured gardens or a sweeping vista of entire gardens.

A collection of photos of the gardens in bloom are available for artists or artists may visit the gardens and use their inspiration and imagination to create works for the April exhibition.
