CALL FOR ARTISTS
DEADLINE: February 20th.
The show will run from March 24th to May 2nd., 2019
Opening Reception Sunday, March 24th, 2 to 5 pm
Hamilton Street Gallery welcomes the arrival of spring in celebration of trees. Whether they be tall or dwarf, evergreen or deciduous, pyramidal, pendulous, or palmetto, with fruit, blooms or berries, trees are endlessly vibrant and diverse in purpose, form and beauty. Many things found in nature mirror the characteristics of trees. It’s branching habit, for example, might be reflected in the antlers of a deer, the winding tributaries of a river, or even the network of nerve tissue within the cerebellum. The wonders of nature have mysteriously linked trees to all living things, including humans. However, it has become obvious to many that we have shirked our responsibility, as the effects of global warming expand, infestation and deforestation increase, fires become uncontrollable, and flood waters continue to rise. We may have reached the point where hugs are not enough. For this juried exhibition we’re asking artists to submit work related to the subject of trees. Artists may also choose concepts associated with tree-like imagery. As always, we encourage artists to be adventurous, and all media is accepted.
1. Exhibition is open to residents 18 years or older, living in NY, NJ and PA.
2. All media will be considered and must be original and by the artist.
3. We prefer that work be hand delivered to the gallery, but will accept pre-paid shipment of work
preferably through the Post Office with return packaging to and from the gallery.
