Call for Art - ENVIRONMENTAL ART at Ida Culver House Broadview

Era Living CALL FOR ART
Instructions for Email Submission
                           
Greetings Artists,
I am thrilled announce the call for “ENVIRONMENTAL ART.”   I am seeking art that depicts the natural environment in broad interpretations from subject matter to natural materials used in the art.   Subject matter can praise the beauty of the natural world, lament the destruction of it at our hands, or document the power of natural forces.  This theme is inspired by our partnership with Heaven and Earth art installations at Carkeek Park.  The art for Ida Culver House Broadview will be interior works with some art in the garden.  Ida Culver House Broadview will host various events including art receptions, leading art making workshops, and artist talks during this show.  Please follow submission guidelines carefully and send your submission to me at curator@junesekiguchi.com
