Great Hollow Virtual Juried Painting and Photography Show May 20 – June 30, 2021
Deadline for Submissions: April 15, 2021
The 2020 Great Hollow Photographers Club Virtual Juried Art Show was a great success. Our artists made sales and the winners got wonderful exposure in our follow-up exhibit at the Sherman Library. We hope you will join us for our fourth year. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the show will be a virtual art show again. The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2021. Applicants will be notified of which artworks are accepted by April 25, 2021, application fees are due May 5, 2021 and the virtual show will be online May 20 – June 30, 2021.
Artists are invited to submit up to four (4) digital images of 2-dimensional work for the competition (media includes photographs, paintings, collage, and drawings). There is no cost to submit. The hanging fee for the virtual show continues to be $10 for each accepted work and the Great Hollow Photographers Club will retain a 25% commission on all works sold during the show. All works must be for sale as the proceeds from the Art Show support Great Hollow Nature Preserve’s mission of environmental education, research, and conservation.
Jurors for the artwork are Michael Garland for painting and John Clery for photography. Michael Garland is a New York Times best-selling author and illustrator of children’s picture books and is also a fine art painter with many paintings in collections around the country. John H Clery is a recognized award winning wildlife photographer who specializes in capturing images that tell a story and allow the viewer a brief glimpse into his subject’s lives. His articles and photographs have appeared in many regional publications.
Prizes for first, second and third place for both painting and photography will be donations from local businesses. Accepted artwork will be posted on a website connected to the GHPC. Additionally: winners and honorable mentions will be invited to participate in a follow-up physical and virtual show at the Sherman Library in Sherman, CT in late summer.
The subject of all the works must be of nature found within Great Hollow Nature Preserve and the surrounding area. Deadline for submissions is Midnight on Thursday, April 15, 2021.
