Call for New Mexico Botanical Artists
“…the exhibit will feature about 30 artists who will select their subject matter based on plant lists that have a history in New Mexico…”
From a City of Santa Fe News Release
The City of Santa Fe Community Gallery is seeking artists to participate in the upcoming exhibition entitled “Botanical Treasures of New Mexico.” Co-sponsored by the Santa Fe Botanical Garden, the exhibit will feature about 30 artists who will select their subject matter based on plant lists that have a history in New Mexico, to include historic, endangered and native plants as potential subjects. All media will be considered but plants featured must clearly be the subject of the work.
The Community Gallery is planning the exhibit for the summer of 2013, scheduled to run from June through August 2013. Artists are asked to provide portfolios of previous work for review no later than May 30, 2012. Artists will be notified of their participation by the middle of June 2012 and asked to submit digital images of their work to the Community Gallery by the end of April 2013.
Any interested artists should submit a portfolio of their work to Rod Lambert, the Community Gallery manager. Portfolios should consist of five to 10 printed images of the artist’s work on standard digital print paper and an artist statement, resume and/or bio. Portfolios should be addressed to Community Gallery, PO Box 909, Santa Fe, NM 87504. Please specify that you would like to be considered for the Botanical Treasures of New Mexico Exhibit. Portfolios must be received by May 30, 2012 for consideration.
