Call to Artists- Rooted in History
Submission Deadline:April 1, 2017
February 10, 2017 - April 1, 2017
Call to Artists
The unique beauty of the Garry oak has inspired the imagination of many creative souls; but there is more to this story that needs a stage. Its ecosystem supports over 100 species of plants and animals, all worthy of the attention of a painter’s brush or photographer’s lens. Through their art, artists are invited to shine a light on this important issue: the survival of this precious and rare ecosystem.
Local artists are asked to create a two-dimensional work inspired by the Garry oak ecosystem. Selected works will be displayed at the Robert Bateman Centre Gallery from May 3rd to June 25th. All works will be available for purchase and a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the Garry Oak Ecosystems Recover Team to support their environmental work.
How to Submit
Submissions are due April 1st 2017. Selected artists will be notified by April 11th 2017.
