Seed Pack Artist Application Guidelines & FAQs
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 from your existing works 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 April. We do our best to notify all applicants of their status, however this process can take some time.
The winning artists receive: An Art Pack featuring your work, $250, 10 Art Packs from the year's collection, a percentage of sales of your fine art print, 50% off seed purchases, inclusion in the pack art gallery show (past years include Kingston Museum of Contemporary Art, New York Botanic Garden, Sotheby's, Tower Hill Botanic Garden, National Heirloom Expo, Northwest Flower Show, Philadelphia Flower Show), exposure in shops, blogs, press (past press includes NY Times, HuffPo, A Way to Garden, DailyCandy, Civil Eats, Martha Stewart Living, Wired, Vogue, and more...) your name on the pack, link on hudsonvalleyseed.com, seedy satisfaction, and green garden love.
