Call for Pack Artists 2011-2012

Deadline April 29th 2011

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 photography. We are always looking for new mediums that have not yet been part of the collection including but not limited to quilting, carving, assemblage, stained glass, etching, handmade paper, seed mosaic, plant material collage, wood burning, metal work, clothing, functional pottery.

Geographic home: This year we are also expanding our geographic range and accepting artwork from artists in New York State, Hudson Valley, Metro NY, and areas that border New York State including western CT, western MA, western VT, eastern PA, and northern NJ.

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.

    I'm a pottery artist. I work in the little studio at Chelsea (New York).
    My pieces are mostly functional, but at the same time they are nice piece of decoration as well.
