We’re excited to be able to work with new artists again for next year! Please follow the guidelines to make sure your submission is accepted.
Mediums: All mediums are accepted except still life photography. We are always looking for a diversity of mediums including but not limited to watercolor, oil, collage, quilting, carving, assemblage, stained glass, etching, handmade paper, seed mosaic, plant material collage, wood burning, metal work, clothing, and functional pottery. Photographic images may be used if they are an element (less than 50%) of the work.
Geographic home: For this call for art we are focusing on artists in the Northeast and those with connections to the Northeast culturally, emotionally, or climatically. (We're open to your interpretation of what that means!) If you are outside of the region keep an eye out for upcoming national calls for art.
Submissions: Submit two images of pieces that you feel best represent your style. These do not need to be garden related. We are looking at your work- originality, craftsmanship, composition, medium, consistency, not necessarily the subject.
Questions: Due to the number of submissions, we do not have time to respond individually to questions. Please do your best to follow our submission guidelines. We've made them as simple as possible. If you have any technical issues with using the Submission Form (below) please send an email here. Semifinalists will be contacted in mid-March. Sketches will be due mid-April. Final pieces will be due end of May.
The winning artists receive: An Art Pack featuring your work, $200, 10 Art Packs from the 2014 collection, a percentage of sales of your fine art print, inclusion in the 2014 pack art gallery show, exposure in shops, blogs, press (past press includes NY Times, HuffPo, A Way to Garden, ReadyMade, DailyCandy, Civil Eats, Martha Stewart Living, Vogue more...) your name on the pack, link on seedlibrary.org, seedy satisfaction, and green garden love.
Thank you for offering your creativity to the Seed Library!
