Great news! Horticulture Magazine: The Art and Science of Smart Gardening, has now partnered with us on the Art of the Heirloom exhibition! This year's show is already starting to fill up with an inspiring diversity of garden related art. The magazine will be helping with the call for art in the coming weeks.
Although the deadline for submissions is July 31st, if the show fills before then we will not be able to accept more work. If you are interested in having your work seen by 20,000+ people as well as major media, now is the time to submit your entry.
"The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution." Paul Cezanne
Are you an artist inspired by heirloom gardens? Gardens are unique expressions of a gardener's hand and heirloom varieties are a reflection of the diversity of gardener's sensibilities, palate, and notions of beauty.
The Art of the Heirloom is a juried exhibition of artist's interpretations and contemplations of heirloom seeds and the cultural importance of preserving our collective garden heritage.
We seek works of art that are inspired by heirloom gardening. Works in all media and formats will be considered excluding still photography. Works may be illustrative, sculptural, abstract, concrete, or conceptual interpretations of one of four categories. One prize will be awarded in each category plus a Gardener's Choice Award voted on by visitors to the Expo.
The National Heirloom Expo is attended by over 25,000 visitors and this year's winning works of art will be featured in Heirloom Gardener Magazine.
