CALL FOR ART
OUR CONNECTION WITH NATURE — Earth Day 2021
This year has had extreme challenges. Many have sought out nature as a stabilizing, nurturing place. How has your experience with nature informed your art? How do you “feel” nature in your art? Pierre Bonnard said, “Art will never be able to exist without nature.”
In celebration of Earth Day 2021, Gallery Sitka invites you to submit up to three images that are related to your personal connection with nature. The selected works will be on display from Friday, April 23 to Tuesday, June 1, 2021 in Gallery Sitka in Shirley, Mass., on gallerysitka.com, and on Gallery Sitka’s ARTSY page. This show will be curated by Gallery Sitka’s represented NYC artist Beth Barry. (For purposes of the show online, the works should be available from Gallery Sitka for the entire year, until December 31, 2021.)
Images of the work should be submitted digitally by 4 p.m. on March 26th.
Digital files should be labeled as follows: Artist_Title_Medium_Size_Year_Price.jpg
The work should be 2-D, ready to hang on a wall with hanging wire (no saw-tooth hooks). All media will be considered. Gallery Sitka prefers framed works.
Size should be no larger than 20″ × 20″.
Submissions should include artists’ bios and statements, as well as specs on each work’s size, medium, title, price, and year of completion. Each work should be accompanied by a statement of one short paragraph.
