Calling all artists for “A Killing Frost”

Calling all artists for “A Killing Frost”

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, October 19, 2019

In New Jersey, gardeners are blessed with a long growing season, often up to eight months, depending on the arrival of the dreaded killing frost. Sometime around late October, early November, large masses of polar winds coming out of the North West blast a deep freeze that wipes out everything in the garden, but the most cold tolerant plants. For the most part, gardening, is a predictable venture with an occasional pest infestation, maybe a leaf fungus, heavy rains, and drought, but the quick and decisive killing frost is the garden’s final curtain call. Gardeners, who are cyclical by nature, surrender to the ancient knowledge that the killer and it’s sugar coated icy evolution has come, and it’s time to get to work and start planning for next years garden.

For this exhibition, The Hamilton Street Gallery is asking artists to submit work about frosts and gardens in nature, as related to beginnings and endings, or explored metaphorically, such as in a spiritual, social/political, or personal context. As always, they encourage artists to be adventurous and all media is accepted.
