Call for Artists!

by Anna Sones

 2021 Seed Pack Artist Application Guidelines & FAQs

Pack Artists: Our general call for art is limited to US-based artists, but the following calls for art allow international submissions: Two Seeds in a Pod, Shumei, and Palestine Heirloom Seed Library. To see examples of past selected artists and mediums, please look at our Art Packs and Fine Art Prints.

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, metalwork, 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 (link below) please send an email to Semi-finalists will be contacted in June. 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, $300, 10 Art Packs, a percentage of sales of your fine art print, 50% off seed purchases, inclusion in the pack art gallery show, your name on the pack, link on, 'meet the artist' blog post and subscriber newsletter, seedy satisfaction, and green garden love.

Thank you for offering your creativity to the Hudson Valley Seed Company!
