Call for Entry: Out on a Limb

Call for Entry: Out on a Limb

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, July 18, 2018

St. Charles, MO –The theme of this exhibition will be trees, inviting artists to portray one of the planet’s most important and beautiful resources. We encourage artists to seek out trees in any season and depict whatever aspect of them they find most engaging and inspiring whether the entire tree, a leaf, branch, fruit, flower or seed.
This exhibition explores two branches of the same tree. The first is the Botanical Art Branch. Artists are invited to engage in the traditional art of creating botanically accurate 2-D portrayals of trees in hand applied media. The second branch of this call is the Open Media Branch: botanically inspired 2D or 3D pieces depicting tree subjects or created from materials derived from trees (wood, bark, etc.).

All entries are due by July 16, 2018. Out on a Limb will open with a reception October 5, 2018, from 5:30pm – 8: 00 pm, in conjunction with Out of the Woods – Celebrating Trees in Public Gardens, The New York Botanical Garden Third Triennial, an international juried traveling exhibition of artwork by members of the American Society of Botanical Artists. All works in this exhibition depict specimen trees among the living collections of botanical gardens and arboreta around the world. For more information about botanical art, the companion exhibition and examples of the genre visit www.asba-art.org

Serving as jurors for Out on a Limb are Dr. Peter Wyse Jackson, the president of the Missouri Botanical Garden and George Engelmann Professor of Botany at Washington University, and Michael Schoenewies, an artist, photographer, and member of the Foundry Art Centre Artist Advisory Board. Jody Williams, the immediate past president of the American Society of Botanical Artists, a member of its steering committee for Botanical Art Worldwide: America’s Flora, and a Studio Artist at the Foundry Art Centre, will serve as Jury Facilitator.
