CALL FOR ENTRIES: Going Green: Celebrate the Earth!
March 31 – April 29
Deadline: March 9, 2018
The Art Guild invites all artists, 18 years and older (high school students ages 14-18 years may enter in the student category), to submit digital images of their 2D or 3D art works for consideration for its Going Green: Celebrate the Earth Exhibition and Competition.
Join us in honoring our late member, Myra Fox as we celebrate Earth Day. A committed environmentalist and chair of the original “Going Green” exhibit, Myra was happiest when her hands were dirty – either with paint or from her gardening work. We invite artists to repurpose, recycle or create new artwork to celebrate the beauty of the world around us and honor the spirit of Myra, who was so committed to healing our earth.
All work must be original. Celebrate the beauty of our planet. Raise public awareness. Show us your green ideas by using traditional media and/or old things in new ways. Recycle, Reuse and Renew. The selection committee’s decision is final. Works to be included in this exhibition must be available from March 25 – April 29.
Any medium, including but not limited to acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel, drawings, mixed media, collage or sculpture with pedestal. (NO COPIES, REPRODUCTIONS OR GICLEES PLEASE)
Martha Tarlow, Owner of the Roslyn Village Gallery. Marsha Tarlow was born in Manhattan and grew up on the lower East Side where her parents encouraged an appreciation of the arts and nurtured her love of painting. Marsha opened the Roslyn Village Gallery in 2016 and featured a large exhibit of Myra Fox’s work in 2017.
Of her own art Marsha says, “I believe my paintings speak on a level that makes one feel good. My art is peaceful, inspiring in me a feeling of serenity. If the content is sincere, it will be noticed. To me, painting is like breathing and I often remind myself how lucky I am to be a painter. I don’t believe artistic skill is a natural endowment…you are born with a gift, but the determining factor for an artist is motivation and hard work. It takes intelligence, sensitivity, good teaching and luck to develop artistically.” Her work is in many private collections.
Members: $30 for up to two entries.
Non-Members: $40 for up to two entries.
High School Students: (14-18 years) $15 for up to two entries.
One additional entry: $10 (per person)
