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.
Pack Artists: This year, for the first time, the call for art is open to artists from across the country. To see examples of past selected artists and mediums look at our Art Packs and Fine Art Prints.
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.
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 the second half of 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 2015 collection, a percentage of sales of your fine art print, inclusion in the 2015 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, Wired, Vogue, and 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!
