GGMGA Symposium Artwork
Every year a work of art is selected to represent the theme for the annual Greater Greenville Master Gardener Association Symposium. The title for our 2017 event is “Ideas for an Inspiring Garden.” We are inviting members of the art community of the Upstate to submit an original piece based on that concept. The work should be an original interpretation by the artist featuring a gardening subject relevant to our overall theme. The art and the artist will be featured in 1,500 symposium brochures and multiple posters advertising the event. A commission of $400 will be paid to the winning artist; additionally, free vendor space at the symposium (February 11, 2017) will be made available for the artist should they choose to sell other pieces of their work.
All 2-dimensional mediums are eligible (excluding computer-generated), with up to 3 submissions per artist. The finished work should be formatted to 11” x 15” so that it can be reduced or enlarged proportionally to fit on our brochure, and can be either vertical or horizontal. The finished piece can be larger than this, as long as formatting size is proportional. No frame or mat is required. Entries must be submitted via a 4” x 6” color photograph of the artwork, labeled with title, size of original work, medium used, name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. Once semi-finalists have been selected, a request will be made to see the original artwork. Entries will be judged and a finalist chosen by a selection committee.
Please send entries to:
GGMGA, Lynn Baldwin, 410 Knollwood Drive, Mauldin, SC 29662.
